Forest fans think Hefele could become an instant hero at the City Ground

Nottingham Forest have signed German defender Michael Hefele from Huddersfield, and Forest fans are buzzing with their deadline day acquisition.

The 27-year-old was something of a cult hero as Huddersfield were promoted to the Premier League in the 2016/17 season, playing 37 times in the league and chipping in with three goals, including a last minute winner in the West Yorkshire Derby against Leeds.

Last season though, the centre-back was limited to just two Premier League appearances and always looked set to leave the Terriers for more game time. He has signed a three-year contract with Aitor Karanka’s side.

Forest made 12 signings in the summer window and broke their transfer record to secure a deal for attacking midfielder Joao Carvalho, but have opened their Championship season with two 1-1 draws against Bristol City and West Brom.

The fans were buzzing with the arrival of Hefele though. Check out some of their best tweets below.
