Nottingham Forest have appointed former England boss Steve McClaren as their new manager on a three-year contract.

The former England boss replaces Billy Davies, who was sacked by the Championship club on Sunday.

McClaren, 50, who previously managed Middlesbrough, has been out of work since being sacked by German club Wolfsburg in February.

He spent 16 months as England boss from August 2006 before winning the league title with FC Twente in 2010.

By all accounts Steve McClaren turned down offers in Holland that would have been more lucrative but was keen to return to managing in England. Some may feel that Billy Davies was harshly fired given that the Scot guided the City Ground club to back to back play-off finishes.

Steve McClaren has had a mixed few years on the continent after his disastrous spell in charge of the English national team. The 50 year old Yorkshireman had two great seasons with FC Twente, culminating in guiding the club to their first ever Dutch Eredivisie title. However a poor run of form at Wolfsburg led to his being sacked by the Bundesliga side in February.
