Dorus de Vries: Dutch goalkeeper now at Nottingham Forest

New Wolves manager Kenny Jackett is looking to cut the wage bill at Molineux and he had informed the 32-year-old Dutchman that he could leave the club if a suitable offer was made to him.

A return to his native Holland was mooted at one stage for De Vries, but he will now stay in England after agreeing personal terms with Forest and passing a medical at the City Ground.

De Vries is vastly experienced when it comes to life in the Football League, having made close to 200 appearances for the Swans, but he found regular football hard to come by during a two-year spell at Wolves.

Forest manager Billy Davies told the club's official website: "Dorus is a very good signing for us. We have a good, young pool of goalkeepers at the club but he brings with him an abundance of experience which will be of benefit to everyone.

"He played a pivotal role in Swansea's meteoric rise through the leagues and was unfortunate not to get more games at Wolves.

"To sign a goalkeeper of his calibre on a free transfer is a great piece of business."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
