Nottingham Forest have signed forward Anthony Elanga from Manchester United for a reported £15million.

The 21-year-old Sweden international, who made 55 appearances in all competitions for United, has agreed a five-year deal.

Elanga told Forest's official website: "It's a pleasure to be here. It's a proud moment, not only for me, but for my family as well.

"It's the perfect next step for me in my career, it's a big step and I'm really looking forward to playing in front of the Forest fans at the City Ground.

"I had interest from elsewhere but for me, Nottingham Forest feels like the perfect place."

Elanga joined United's youth set-up in 2014 and went on to make 39 Premier League appearances, including 21 starts, scoring three goals.

He has netted three times in 12 senior appearances for Sweden since making his debut in March 2022 and is Forest's second summer signing following the arrival of defender Ola Aina from Torino.

The Malmo-born attacker revealed the opportunity to work under Forest boss Steve Cooper proved to be the deciding factor behind the switch.

He added: "I wanted to get it done as soon as I spoke to the head coach.

"He is one of the managers I've been with before, I've spoken to him before and speaking to him recently, I just felt this was the right thing to do.

"I didn't want to jinx anything but as soon as I spoke to him I just felt it straight away.

"I feel like his philosophy will really flourish this season and I'm ready to be part of that team."
