Benalouane completes Nottingham Forest switch

Yohan Benalouane has become Martin O’Neill’s first signing as Nottingham Forest manager, according to Sky Sports.

The former Republic of Ireland manager, who was announced as Aitor Karanka’s replacement at the City Ground on Tuesday afternoon has wasted no time in adding to his squad, focussing on an area where the club are desperately short due to injuries and suspension.

Benalouane moved to Leicester City in the summer of 2015 but racked up just four league appearances in his first season – one short of the amount required for him to receive a Premier League winner’s medal.

In total, he played twenty-nine times for the Foxes in all competitions though only one of those outings came in the league last season while he hasn’t featured at all this term.

The Tunisia international did however make his country’s squad for last summer’s World Cup finals in Russia where he played in a 5-2 defeat to Belgium.
