MOST READ

Striker Nathan Holland has joined Forest Green on a permanent transfer from MK Dons.

Holland started his career at Everton before making the switch to West Ham United in 2017.

He made four first-team appearances during his time at the Hammers, including two in the Premier League, while he impressed in the Premier League 2.

The 25-year-old registered 18 direct goal involvements in 13 games during the 19/20 Premier League 2 campaign. He then joined Oxford United for the second half of that season, making 12 appearances before the campaign was curtailed due to Covid-19.

He then returned to the Kassam Stadium on another loan deal the following season, scoring five goals and registering seven assists as the Yellows finished eighth in League One.

Holland joined MK Dons on a permanent deal last summer, with the exciting attacking player making 37 appearances for the Dons overall.

After joining Rovers, Holland said: “I’m really happy to be here. It’s been great to meet the staff, players and check out the surroundings – which are really impressive.

“I’m a direct player, I like to take risks on the ball and hopefully I’ll get lots of goals and assists.”

David Horseman added: “Nathan is a good one for us because he’s a very talented individual who can create chances out of nothing.

“He’s a very good dribbler, especially in and around the box. He’s got lots of potential and I think he’s somebody who can win us games.”

FGR’s Director of Football, Allan Steele, said: “We’re really pleased to welcome Nathan to the club. 

“He is someone who has a variety of excellent experiences at some top clubs, and this is an amazing opportunity to bring all of that together with a great group of players and staff.”
