Forest sign Bennett from Walsall
Forest have agreed a fee for Walsall defender Julian Bennett
Bennett is returning to play for his home-town club
Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of defender Julian Bennett from Walsall for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old Nottingham-born left-back travelled to the City Ground on Tuesday to discuss personal terms with the Reds and undergo a medical.

"Lots of other teams, including ones in the Championship, were showing interest in me, but this is my home-town club and it's a dream come true," he said.

Boss Gary Megson added: "Julian is a player I've tracked for some time."

Bennett broke into the Walsall side as a central defender but has staked a regular spot at left-back.

Since making his debut last season, Bennett has made more than 50 appearances for the Saddlers.
