Calderwood snaps up keeper Smith
Keeper Paul Smith
Smith joined Southampton from Brentford for 500,000 in 2004
Nottingham Forest boss Colin Calderwood has completed his first signing at The City Ground with the capture of Southampton goalkeeper Paul Smith.

The 26-year-old has signed a three-year contract with the League One outfit.

"When the opportunity arrived to play for such a prestigious club and learn from an excellent young manager too, I knew I had to take it," said Smith.

"There is a great set-up and everyone is determined to make a serious attempt at winning promotion this season."

He added: "Forest have been in League One long enough now and we need to get back to challenging for a place in the Premiership.

"I am really looking forward to getting started and hopefully challenging for a first team place."

Smith will provide current Red's number one Rune Pedersen with competition for the goalkeeper's position.
