Nottingham Forest have today made a signing!!! Most didn't see it coming.
Kris Boyd has signed on loan from Middlesbrough, with Paul Smith going in the other direction as part of the deal. Smith, although ample cover for Camp did spend the first portion of the season away from the side completely,so won't be a complete loss. Boro have goalkeeper problems with injuries to Steele and Coyne.
Boyd is most famous for his time at Rangers, and following his move to Middlesbrough with half of the rest of Scottish professional footballers, has fallen out of favour with Tony Mowbray,after being signed by former manager Gordon Strachan.
Boyd was prolific in Scotland, scoring 101 goals in 143 appearances. He will hope to reignite this form with Forest,who have been lacklustre in front of goal in recent times. The move is somewhat of a gamble, as we taking on a large part if not all of his ample £30k a week wages. An added reason Boro wanted to shift him on.
Boyd may well go straight into the squad if not the team for tonights match with Sheffield United.
