Nottingham Forest have named former Tottenham and Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo as their new manager.

The 49-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract and succeeds Steve Cooper, who was sacked earlier this week.

Nuno will take charge of his first game as Forest boss when his club face Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

Nuno’s most recent job was at Saudi Arabia outfit Al-Ittihad, where he led the club to league and cup success last season.
