Forest tie up double signing

20 July 2009 01:48
Nottingham Forest have wrapped up the double signing of Preston North End midfielder Paul McKenna and Tottenham Hotspur defender Chris Gunter. McKenna moves to the City Ground for £750,000 and has signed a three-year contract, while Gunter arrives for £1.75million after penning a four-year deal. Former Lilywhites stalwart McKenna told his new club's official website: "It's a massive change for me but I think it was time for that change. "You can get stale being at a club too long but I've had great times there and I'll look back with fond memories. "But when an opportunity like this falls into your lap you would be a fool not to take it. "Coming here has given me a new lease of life and I'm really excited about the challenge ahead." Gunter, who impressed while on loan at Forest last season, added: "There was never a temptation to look at other clubs who were supposedly interested. "I wasn't sure whether the reports were true or not because I didn't bother to find out. I was just praying that this move would happen and I'm delighted it has."
