Nottingham Forest have announced the signing of German midfielder Robert Tesche on a one-year deal.

The 27-year-old joins on a free transfer from SV Hamburg ending a five-year spell at the club.

Tesche progressed through the ranks at Arminia Bielefeld before moving onto Hamburg and then Fortuna Dusseldorf, where he made 14 appearances during a loan spell last season.

He is a former team-mate of defender Michael Mancienne, who joined the City Ground last month, and becomes Forest's 11th summer signing.
