Norkett signs for Nottingham Forest
Manni Norkett has officially completed a move to Nottingham Forest.
The 18-year-old was one of three youngsters unveiled by the City Ground club on Thursday, after his contract expired at United.

Norkett was born in Nottingham and had a loan-experience spell with Gainsborough Trinity, during his time with United.
The hard-working centre-forward made his Under-21s debut in the Papa Johns Trophy tie at Sunderland in 2021, and scored nine times in the Under-18s Premier League last term.
He also netted in the FA Youth Cup victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in December.
The Academy always supports our graduates and celebrates their success after leaving the club.
We would like to wish Manni the very best of luck at Forest, and hope to come across him in Premier League 2 next season.
