John Pemberton rejoins the coaching staff at Nottingham Forest after leaving League One club Sheffield United.

John Pemberton has insisted that he is rejoining a club "he knows really well" as he returns to Nottingham Forest as a coach.

The 47-year-old left the City Ground in 2009 after a 12-year spell with the club, and the former Sheffield United academy director has admitted that he has always had close affinity with Nottingham Forest.

Pemberton told the club's website: "I've got great affection for Forest. It is a club I know really well.

"It's about trying to bridge the gap between manager Sean O'Driscoll and his staff at first-team level and Nick Marshall and Gary Brazil at academy level."

Nottingham Forest are currently in 11th place in the Championship table.
