Forest complete double signing

Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Queens Park Rangers forward Jamie Mackie, according to BBC Sport.

The Scotland international put pen to paper on a three year contract with the Championship club, after it was announced that he submitted a transfer request just hours before.

The 27 year old started less than half of the Hoops Premier League matches last season after falling out of favour following Loic Remy’s arrival at Loftus Road.

His debut season for Rangers was his most successful, when his nine goals in twenty-five appearances helped clinch the Championship title.

Forest were linked with a move for Mackie while he was at Plymouth Argyle in 2010, though he opted for a move to the capital.

The former European champions also confirmed the signing of Algerian international Djamel Abdoun on Thursday.

Billy Davies side have now made eight new additions this summer, having already wrapped up permanent deals for goalkeeper Dorus de Vries, defenders Eric Lichaj and Gonzalo Jara Reyes and forwards Darius Henderson and Jamie Paterson, while Hull City’s Jack Hobbs has joined on an initial one year loan.
