Bennett: Forest move is 'dream come true'

The Nottingham-born defender tied up his switch to the City Ground yesterday, in a deal reportedly worth £100,000 to former club Walsall.

The 21-year-old said: "It's amazing how things have worked out.

"I'm back with my home-town club and it feels fantastic.

"It's a dream come true for me to have the opportunity to join my local club and such a big club as well.

"There were other teams showing an interest in me, teams from the Championship.

"But once I became aware of Forest's interest, there was no question of me going anywhere but The City Ground."
