Serge Aurier becomes Forest’s 22nd signing since EPL return

NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) — Make it 22.

The closing of the summer transfer window last week hasn’t stopped big-spending Nottingham Forest from adding to its squad, with Ivory Coast captain Serge Aurier joining as a free agent on Wednesday.

Aurier became Forest’s 22nd signing since the team sealed a return to the Premier League after an absence of 23 years.

The rebuilding of the squad cost Forest around $160 million.

The 29-year-old Aurier spent last season at Villarreal, having previously been in the Premier League with Tottenham.
