Toronto FC defender Richie Laryea joins Nottingham Forest


Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Toronto FC and Canadian full-back Richie Laryea on a permanent transfer.

Laryea, who turned 27 last Friday, will now live out her self-proclaimed dream of playing in Europe.

The player began his senior career with Orlando City after being selected in the first round of the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. He then moved to his hometown of Toronto in 2019 and is believed to have rejected a new contract that would have made him the highest paid pitcher in the league to be able to switch to Forest this month.

– It feels fantastic to be here. It has been nothing but positivity since I stepped into the building and I hope to keep it that way, Laryea says to her new club’s official website.

“When you visit the stadium, you can see the history immediately. You can see that this is what English football is about and this is what I saw when I was growing up as a child, so it’s a great feeling to be here. There are many matches in the Championship and it is a division with a high tempo that makes me happy.

“I’m ready to start working and ready to play at City Ground and see close to 30,000 fans here. I’m willing to give my all for my teammates and the club.”

Laryea joins a Forest team that started the season disastrously but which has since risen to the top half of the table under the leadership of the new manager Steve Cooper, who was appointed in September.

Just across the corridor through the season, the club is six points from the Championship play-offs as they try to return to the Premier League for the first time in 23 years.
