BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, January 14, 2011
US international Robbie Findley successfully obtained his UK work permit after a hearing in London according to a report on Nottingham Forest website.
The US forward previously signed a contract to join the club but it was contingent on obtaining a work permit.
With that now cleared, Findley will become the newest American in England.
Findley will now leave MLS after playing 100 games combined between Real Salt Lake and the LA Galaxy.
He scored 100 goals in the league's regular season and in 2009 he helped Real Salt Lake win their first ever MLS Cup.
Findley has earned 11 caps for the US national team but has yet to score.
Nottingham Forest currently sit in seventh place in the English Championship and are only two points out of the sixth spot which would send them into the playoffs for a promotional spot to the Premier League.
