He still remained under contract at the Liberty Stadium but now he has taken charge at the City Ground after Forest agreed a compensation package with their Championship rivals.

Cooper replaces Chris Hughton after the veteran was axed last week following a home defeat to Middlesbrough left the club bottom of the league.

Dane Murphy, Forest’s chief executive, said: “Steve was our first choice as head coach and we are delighted to have secured his services.

“On behalf of the owner and the board, we welcome Steve to the club and look forward to providing every support he needs to be a success at Nottingham Forest.”

Cooper, who led Swansea to back-to-back play-off finishes, moved to Wales in 2019.

He was previously Liverpool’s academy manager before joining the Football Association to coach England’s youth teams.
