Nottingham Forest have confirmed the appointment of former player Stuart Pearce as manager from July, BBC Sport has reported.

The former England Under-21 manager will fill the vacancy left by the sacking of Billy Davies and replace caretaker boss Gary Brazil, who has been in charge since Davies’ departure.


Pearce originally rejected the offer to take over at the City Ground, citing family reasons, but explained at a Press conference his thought process. “I had so much on of a personal nature that it wasn't the right time,” Pearce said.


“But when they asked if I would take it from the summer, I jumped at the chance. Everything seems right.”


Pearce, who has also managed Manchester City, played for Forest between 1985 and 1997, leaving following a period as caretaker manager.


He later played for Newcastle United, West Ham and Man City before retiring upon taking a role at City as a coach, later replacing Kevin Keegan as manager. Pearce also made 78 appearances for England and was the Team GB Coach for the London 2012 Olympics.


“I am really happy to have Stuart as boss,” said Fawaz Al Hasawi, the Forest owner said. “He is a very good manager, he has a good CV and I wish him all the best with us.”


Forest are currently seventh in the Championship and Pearce will become manager regardless of the club’s league status next season, as a successful play-off campaign would see the two-time European Cup winners return to the Premier League.
