The Football League have hit Nottingham Forest with a transfer embargo, meaning the club will not be able to sign players during the January transfer window.

The embargo is given because Forest breached the Football League's 'Financial Fair Play' rules - the club incurred financial losses of more than the £8million permitted last season.

Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers have also been hit by the ban for the same reason.

An initial analysis of FFP submissions from the current 24 Championship clubs has indicated that three clubs - Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United and Nottingham Forest - have failed to meet the fair play requirement under the division's FFP rules.

Consequently, all three will be subject to an 'FFP embargo' under Football League regulations from January 1, 2015 for the remainder of the current campaign.

I'm really pleased to be here. Nottingham Forest is a massive club, it has great potential to reach the Premier League and, on a personal level, I'm here to better myself as a player and get as far as I can.

Forest have an amazing history and they have been pushing for promotion to the Premier League for the last four or five years. Hopefully now we can get there.
