Chris Wood’s move to Nottingham Forest has become permanent

Nottingham Forest have signed Chris Wood on a permanent basis, after activating the terms of his loan transfer from Newcastle United.

The New Zealand international striker made his third appearance as Steve Cupper’s side lost 2-0 at Fulham last weekend – which was enough to ensure Forest would pay Premier League rivals £15m for the 31-year-old.

Wood has not yet registered with his new team, but mainly played in the team under Cooper, after moving from the Northeast.

Wood played a crucial role in Newcastle’s relegation battle last season when he signed for the club from Burnley for £25m in January.

But he has seen his minutes dwindle this season. In total, he scored 5 goals for Newcastle in 39 matches.

Wood scored 59 goals for former clubs Burnley and Newcastle combined, in 189 First Division appearances.

The former West Bromwich, Leicester and Leeds player won 70 caps for New Zealand, scoring 33 goals.
