Nottingham Forest have appointed Steve Cooper as head coach on a two-year contract.
Forest agreed compensation with his former club Swansea late last week because Cooper was still technically contracted to the Welsh club.
He left the Liberty Stadium as head coach in July after leading them to the Championship play-offs.

Cooper, who guided England to the U17 World Cup in 2017, was immediately identified as the preferred candidate following the sacking of Chris Hughton.
“Steve was our first choice as head coach and we are delighted to have secured his services. His record of developing young talent is exceptional,” Forest CEO Dane Murphy said.
“Steve knows what is required to be successful in the Championship and has a proven track record with Swansea.
“We have reduced the age of our squad over the summer and Steve is the ideal coach to blend a team to start moving us up the table.
“On behalf of the owner and the board, we welcome Steve to the club and look forward to providing every support he needs to be a success at Nottingham Forest”.
