The versatile 26-year-old, the club's current player of the year, skippered the Reds on several occasions during the 2012/13 campaign in the absence of Danny Collins.

He was thrilled to accept manager Billy Davies' offer, telling Forest's official website: "It's a massive honour to be captain of such a huge club.

"I'm really looking forward to it but nothing is going to change with me. I just want to set examples in the way I play football, which is something I have always tried to do."

Midfielder Andy Reid has been named vice-captain, a move Cohen has welcomed.

He added: "The manager knows how much experience Reidy has. He has been at some massive clubs and is used to big pressure situations, which will come into play in the coming months.

"He and the other experienced players in the team will be crucial to us this season."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
