    Can't believe he's 26 already. No idea if he's been any good in Germany or not, but he certainly looked the part back in that England Under 21 team.

    Pearce just keeps delivering the goods.

    Bloody hell. Haven't seen him for a few years but he was good before leaving for Germany.

    Where has this signing even come from? Very efficient.

    If they could stay fit then our centre backs would be the best in the league. Hobbs, Wilson, Lascelles and now Mancienne, with Collins, Halford and the Spanish kid as back ups.

    Very happy with this. Surely Lascelles will be going? But if we get a decent fee from him and replace with quality, so be it.

    Not necessarily, perhaps this is the Wilson replacement, with Lascelles as the other centre back, if Hobbs isn't 100%. Of course, they could be sending Lascelles out for a season loan or something.

    Lascelles out for £6m or so
    Mancienne, Laing and Riera in for £1.5m

    I know that Jamaal is outstanding, but that's damn good business

    Video of him last year in the Bundesliga, the title of the video is "The Machine" which can't be a bad thing!

    Huh? Sending Lascelles on loan, the only way he is leaving will surely be by getting top dollar for him.

    Yep, agreed.

    I don;t think the 'plan' is that detailed at this stage, let's just get bodies in so there's some competition for places and we don't end up having to ask Midfielders, full-backs and even strikers to play centre-back as in previous seasons.

    He is absolute class. This is a fantastic signing. I want Jamaal to stay, but what a way to cushion the blow

    Pearce played him as a DM quite often for the U21's.

    Why do people think this means Lascelles will go? We're not in a position to sell a centre back... We have two biscuits in Hobbs and Wilson, Laing who although has potential has never played at this level, Riera who looks to be going into the under 21s and Danny Collins who's awful... That leaves us with Lascelles who is also injured!

    Top class signing, but I am worried about Forest fans potential inability to correctly spell his last name.

    What is also important with the way Pearce has done business, and the quality he's shown so far, is that it's clear there is definite intention to get promoted out of this league. The ambition must also help when he's wanting to sign players. If you were a young lad speaking to Forest, you'd want to be a part of what he's putting together.

    Was a permanent starter for Wolves as well in the prem when they stayed up for a few seasons. So has got lots of Prem experience. Would be a good bit of business if we can pull it off and would be an almost certain starter.

    Was floating as an idea on here the moment last season finished I believe. Would be a good capture, especially as he can play in midfield too, exactly the player we need with the right calibre.

    CBs of Hobbs, Lascelles, Mancienne, Riera whilst assuming Collins can go and Wilson is ded is very solid.

    Proud father of the :whoosh:

    We have signed 3 defenders so far in the off-season. Do we expect Pearce to off-load Halford and Collins?

    I'm pretty shocked he couldn't have moved to a premier league team tbh. Either his stock has fallen (Hamburg were pretty poor last year, right?) or he has a great deal of faith in Pearce and what he's doing here.

    Heck of a signing, from memory he's definitely got composure and a bit of pace.

    If he gets shot of Collins then frankly the man can do no wrong. Best piece of business we'll do all summer.
