Nottingham Forest striker Emmanuel Dennis has shared what he thought about training at the club when he first arrived.

Dennis swapped Watford for the City Ground in the summer, costing the Reds a fee of around £20 million.

The Nigerian talisman scored 10 goals in the Premier League last season and he was courted by a number of clubs.

Forest won the race though and he recently scored his first goal for the club against Aston Villa.

Dennis will be hoping to enjoy a run in the team now and he’s been put up for an interview ahead of tonight’s trip to Brighton.

The 24-year-old has been sharing his thoughts on the team spirit following a summer that saw 22 new players arrive.

He’s explained that things are now going in the right direction but suggested training wasn’t great when he arrived.

He told BBC Radio Nottingham: “When I came it was a bit boring for me, the training and all the other stuff.

“I didn’t know nobody and everyone was just like really quiet and that’s the vibes I’m just not used to. I like to be happy.

“Now, it’s been six weeks, I have a few friends in the team and everyone is happy.

“The team spirit is good now.”

Dennis has shared training experience at Forest

This highlights perfectly the problem that Steve Cooper has at the City Ground this season.

Having so many new players to blend together is always going to lead to some disjointed moments throughout the season.

Thankfully, Dennis appears to have confirmed that things are improving on the training ground these days.

His form of late suggests that he’s settling in nicely and it was a great moment for him to score against Aston Villa.

Dennis knows where the back of the net is and given his age, he looks like a very useful signing by Forest.

It’s important that relationships start to appear on the field and Dennis deserves to keep his place in the team.

The striker isn’t shy in coming forward and he sounds determined to help Forest climb the Premier League table.
