Versatile midfielder Jonathan Greening has left Fulham to join Nottingham Forest on a three-year deal - and could take the captain's armband.[LNB] The 32-year-old Scarborough-born schemer, who can play anywhere across the midfield four, began his career at York City before spending three years at Manchester United.[LNB]Greening has also played for Middlesbrough and West Brom, and was a fans' favourite at The Hawthorns where he was skipper for most of his spell there.[LNB]However, he only made 10 league appearances for the Cottagers last season and his move to the City Ground should ensure him more first-team football.[LNB]Greening followed new Forest boss Steve McClaren to Middlesbrough from Manchester United when he took charge at the Riverside in 2001.[LNB]He will reportedly cost McClaren around £600,000 this time and is a contender for the captaincy this season following the release of Paul McKenna.
