Nottingham Forest have signing goalkeeper Ryan Hammond from Millwall.
The stopper, 18, has signed a 12-month deal with the Premier League new boys also having an option to extend by a further 12 months.
Hammond told Forest’s official website: “It’s an absolute pleasure to have signed for Nottingham Forest. The history of the club is massive and I’m looking forward to settling in, getting to work and keeping clean sheets.
“I want to settle into the U23s, make myself one of the first names on the teamsheet and look to push towards the first team.”
Lead academy goalkeeping coach Adam Skinner added: “We are delighted to go on a journey with Ryan, and feel he is a young goalkeeper with some strong attributes that we can help him develop.
“Ryan understands that it will be hard work from the very start, but with the right mentality we feel he can develop into a good goalkeeper.
“His physical presence, along with his ability to defend the goal are strengths of his game, and we hope to build on this as we go through the season.”
