Official | Nottingham Forest sign Omar Richards from Bayern Munich

Newly-promoted Premier League side announced the signing of 24-year-old Omar Richards from Bayern Munich for a reported €10m on Sunday morning.

The English left-back has signed a four-year contract until 2026, just one-year after joining Bayern on a free transfer.

“I’m thrilled to return to England by joining Nottingham Forest at such an exciting time,” said Richards. “The club has enjoyed an incredible last few months and there’s great ambitions for the Premier League return.

“I’ve played against Forest in the past and they get such great backing from their fans, whilst the City Ground is an amazing place that I can now call home. I can’t wait to join up with the squad this week and begin preparations for the new season.”

According to Fabrizio Romano, there’s also a 15% sell-on clause included in the deal.

In just one season at Bayern Munich, Richards played 575 minutes across 17 games in all competitions, providing excellent competition for Alphonso Davies at left-back.
