Djamel Abdoun: Joins Nottingham Forest

Abdoun, capped 11 times by Algeria, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at the City Ground.

The 27-year-old, who had a brief loan spell at Manchester City in 2007, was raised in France and spent his youth career with Paris Saint-Germain and Ajaccio before opting to join Kavala in Greece.

Despite Kavala's relegation from the top flight in 2011, Abdoun was a shining light and his performances earned him a move to Olympiacos where he scooped a second successive league title.

He remained a pivotal figure during the 2012/13 campaign, notching eight goals in a season which saw him pick up another league winners' medal and experience Champions League football against the likes of Arsenal and Schalke.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
