Fryatt, 28, will move to the City Ground on a free transfer when his contract expires on July 1.

The former Leicester forward, who has scored 129 career goals, rejected a new improved contract offer from the Tigers last week.

Forest manager Stuart Pearce was keen to bolster his strike force after seeing a number of forwards leave at the end of last season.

Fryatt had fallen down the pecking order at Hull behind Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic but still managed to finish top goalscorer in all competitions despite not starting a Premier League game.

"I am delighted to announce the signing of Matty Fryatt on a three-year contract, he is a player this club has admired for many years," Forest owner and chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi said via his official Twitter account.

"I am delighted to have finally got our man. I look forward to welcoming him into this great club when his contract starts on July 1."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
