Wilson returns to Forest

Nottingham Forest have re-signed defender Kelvin Wilson from Celtic, BBC Sport understands.

The 27 year old left the City Ground for Celtic Park on a Bosman two years ago, but has returned to his hometown club for their promotion push this season.

He made seventy-six appearances for Neil Lennon’s side – the last of which coming in Wednesday evening’s draw with Elfsborg which saw the club progress to the Champions League play-off round –while in terms of honours, he achieved back to back league titles, and lifted the Scottish Cup back in May.

He began his career at Notts County before moving to Preston North End, initially on loan in 2006.

A move back to Nottingham followed, when Forest paid £300,000 for his services in 2007; money that was immediately repaid as the centre-back helped the former European Champions gain promotion back to the Championship in his first season with the club.
