Forest have paid an initial £1.2 million for 24-year-old Miller, who underwent extensive medical tests before putting pen to paper on a three-year deal.

Forest boss Steve McClaren told the club's official website: "Ishmael is still a young player but has loads of experience and a lot to prove.

"He wants to play, which is why he's coming to Forest. He's the type of player we want at the club - he's young and ambitious and fits the criteria perfectly."

McClaren has been keen to add to his attacking options with Forest yet to score in either of their Championship games under his leadership.
