Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of goalkeeper Will Brook following his release from Premier League rivals Leeds United.

Forest have brought in three new young players today.

The search is on for first-team additions but Forest will always have one eye on the future too.

That has been on display today with former Manchester United attacker Manni Norkett given a deal at the City Ground.

Former AFC Wimbledon goalkeeper Harry Griffiths has also joined having announced his departure from the League Two side earlier in June.

Forest’s third addition of the day is another young goalkeeper with Will Brook joining from Leeds United.

All three players will now go into Forest’s academy and will have hopes of becoming first-team players at the City Ground one day.

Who is Nottingham Forest new boy Will Brook?

Brook was born in Pontefract, just about 19 miles outside of Leeds.

The goalkeeper joined Leeds at a young age and made his way up through the ranks at Elland Road.

Brook was handed a first professional contract at Leeds last summer as the Whites seemingly saw potential in him.

The 19-year-old didn’t feature in Premier League 2 last season according to Transfermarkt but did feature on the Leeds bench.

Leeds have now decided to move on, announcing earlier in June that Brook would be leaving the club.

Forest have pounced now though, seemingly believing that Brook could be a real talent for the future.

Forest confirmed that four goalkeepers are leaving the club this summer in Ryan Hammond, Nicky Hogarth, Jordan Smith and Adnan Kanuric.

Brook and Griffiths now come in, with both youngsters no doubt hoping to emerge into Steve Cooper’s first team setup.
