Divock Origi joined Nottingham Forest yesterday as the Reds signed six new faces on deadline day.

The 28-year-old striker has joined the club on a season-long loan from Serie A side AC Milan, in a deal that includes an option to buy next summer.

He returns to the Premier League after spending eight years at Liverpool, scoring one of the most memorable goals in their history during the 4-0 win over Barcelona in the Champions League.
