Eric Lichaj’s time at Nottingham Forest has officially come to an end after he completed a move to fellow Championship outfit Hull City.
The defender spent five years at the club, but they only released a short statement confirming his exit on their official website.
The 29-year-old has moved to the KCOM Stadium for an undisclosed fee, and has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Tigers.
The USA international joined Forest in 2013 from Aston Villa and went on to make close to 200 appearances for the club.

Last season, Lichaj started just 22 Championship matches and came off the bench in one other.
In total, the defender made 27 appearances in all competitions after dropping down the pecking order.
With just one year remaining on his current deal, Forest opted to sell rather than allow him to leave for nothing next summer.
Forest fans have been wishing the defender well on Twitter, and some are disappointed by the news.

Sad to see him go, seems a strange decision to me, but have to trust that Karanka has a plan.
Good luck in the future Eric! #nffc
