Mangala, 24, appeared 29 times for the German team last season, scoring one goal and chipping in with four assists.

In a statement on the clubs website, Forest confirmed Mangala has signed a long-term contract at the City Ground.

The Belgian has been capped twice by the national team, but was not involved in the most recent international break.

Steve Cooper’s side are pulling out all the stops to ensure they survive the threat of relegation in their first season back in the Premier League since 1999.
