The 24-year-old signed a five-year contract with The Reds after leaving Bundesliga club Union Berlin.

The Nigerian is back in England and ready to play a crucial part for Forest, who have just been promoted to the Premier League, who have announced a club-record deal.

A year after joining Union Berlin for £6.5 million from Liverpool, Awoniyi departs the club. He also spent the past season on loan at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.

Union made a profit of £11 million on the 24-year-old after Forest agreed to pay up to £17.5 million for him. He scored 15 goals in 31 games for Union in the Bundesliga last season.

Take good care of him! Good luck back in the EPL” – Union Berlin replied Nottingham on their Twitter page.

Additionally, Liverpool will receive £1.75 million extra thanks to a 10% sell-on clause they negotiated when he switched teams.
