Nathan Tyson completed his move to Derby County today as Nigel Clough`s summer transfer business continued apace with the former Nottingham Forest striker putting pen to paper on a three year deal to become the fifth summer signing to arrive at Pride Park. The out of contract player reportedly turned down a number of other offers to complete the deal and his acquisition continues Clough`s re-shaping of The Rams squad. The free transfer capture said he was excited about the prospect of pulling on a Derby shirt and had ambitions to fire his new side back to the right end of the table and thought this was the perfect platform to reach the highest level. Talking to the official club website about completing his deal Tyson said:
'I've chosen Derby County because I believe it's a fantastic Club and I can't wait to get started if I'm being honest, I know they'll be some hoo-hah because I've moved from Forest and all that, but to me it's irrelevant now. I'm going to give 100% for this Club in every game and try to get us promoted to the Premier League."
'This is probably the most important move of my entire career and I've got that fire in my belly to achieve something here. It's an exciting, fresh challenge and when I met the gaffer and his staff they sold the place to me in an instant.'
Nigel Clough was pleased to get the deal completed and praised the players keenness to sign for The Rams despite previous history between the player and fans after the flag waving incident at the City Ground last year. Clough believes that Tyson will bring something to the side that they don`t have in great abundance in the form of genuine pace and being a threat in behind the opposition backline. He also commented on wanting to play Tyson as a centre forward after he was often played wide left during the last couple of years at Forest and sees this as an opportunity for him to regain his goal scoring form telling dcfc.co.uk:
"Nathan is as quick as anyone in this division, and that will excite the supporters. Also, he's shown throughout his career that when he plays as a striker he can score goals; at Wycombe he scored better than a goal every other game. He was high up on our wanted list because he brings something to our team we haven't had for a long time; a genuine threat to get in behind defences."
