Nottingham Forest have signed Welsh international goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

The 35-year-old has signed a two-year contract after agreeing to leave Burnley.

Hennessey previously played for Wolves and Crystal Palace, before moving to Burnley in 2021. He has made 183 appearances in the top flight and will provide competition and cover for Manchester United stopper Dean Henderson on loan.

Hennessey made his debut for Wales against New Zealand in 2007 and became the country’s third most capped player, having made 103 appearances.

He also played a key role in their recent qualification for the first World Cup final in 58 years, alongside fellow Forest players Brennan Johnson and Neco Williams.

Wayne Hennessey said: “I have played against Forest a lot in the past and they are a fantastic club. There is a huge fan base and the atmosphere at The City Ground is among the best in the game. It will be on a different level now that we are back in the Premier League.

Hennessey will be part of the squad traveling to Barnsley for a friendly match tomorrow.

“Wayne is an excellent goalkeeper who has proven himself at the highest level for many years,” added Forest head coach Steve Cooper. “He has helped Wales reach new heights in the international game and he has a wealth of experience in the Premier League. However, Wayne is also a great character and he is a very strong addition.
