Nottingham Forest sign Swedish forward Anthony Elanga from Manchester United.

Forest are said to have paid United a sum of £15 million for the 21-year-old.

Elanga had been with United since he was 12 and made his first-team debut in 2021, making 55 appearances until Forest came in.

“It’s a pleasure to be here,” he stated of his relocation. It’s a proud occasion not only for myself, but also for my family.

“It’s a big step for me, and I’m excited to play in front of the Forest fans at the City Ground.”

“I had interest from other places, but Nottingham Forest feels like the perfect place for me.”

“I’ve been with United.” It’s a special spot, but being here with Forest makes it much more precious. “I’m up for the challenge.”

Elanga had been on United’s pre-season tour of the United States, but he returned to complete the transfer and became Forest’s first summer signing.

Despite interest from clubs in Germany and Everton, where Elanga was close to going on loan in January, he joins Steve Cooper’s side.

Elanga scored four senior goals for United, and despite failing to score in 26 appearances last season, he only made seven starts.

“Anthony had a number of excellent options in front of him to choose from, so we are naturally delighted that from those he has chosen to become a Nottingham Forest player,” said Forest’s chief football officer Ross Wilson.
