Steve Cooper has brought in 12 players and spent close to £100million, some come with Premier League experience and some without.

The likes of Jesse Lingard and Neco Williams have joined the club.

While Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has signed on a season-long loan.

Cooper has also brought in some exciting talent to go alongside the lines of Brennan Johnson.

Ex-Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi has joined the club, as has Lewis O’Brien.

Forest kick off their Premier League campaign against Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Henderson could start in goal while being protected by a back three of Moussa Niakhate, Steve Cook and Joe Worrall.

Ex-Bayern Munich said Omar Richards and Neco Williams could be the wing-backs charging up and down the line.


Orel Mangala and O’Brien could be the pair to man the midfield with Lingard just in front.

And Johnson could partner Awoniyi.

Copper has vowed the spending will continue until the window closes.

The Forest boss said: “I think there will be more ins and outs.

“We had no alternative other than to make the amount of changes we have made and are continuing to make.

“In an ideal world we would have liked to carry on with a large part of the team from last season and added in the areas we thought we needed.

“We had five players on loan last season and players out of contract this summer.

“Even if we were still in the Championship we would have made the same number of changes.”
