Guedioura will become Sean O'Driscoll's first signing at the City Ground once he has passed a medical.

The Algerian arrived at the club in January and made 19 appearances for the club in the second half of the campaign scoring once - in a 7-3 win at Leeds.

O'Driscoll told the club's official website: "When I heard that Adlene was available for transfer, I moved quickly to sign him.

"He knows the club, knows the fans, and knows what's expected of him on the field. I look forward to utilising his expansive midfield play this season."

The Reds have paid an undisclosed fee for the 26-year-old, who became a fans' favourite during his stay

And chairman Omar Al Hasawi was pleased to have got his man.

He said: "The Al Hasawi family is delighted to have secured Adlene Guedioura as Nottingham Forest's first signing under our ownership.

"He made a huge impact on the team last year and is just the kind of exciting player that we want to see gracing the City Ground this season."

Guedioura moved to Wolves in the summer of 2009 and made more than 30 Premier League appearances before falling out of favour.
