Sheffield United have snapped up Paul Gerrard on a short-term deal.
The former Everton goalkeeper has penned a four-month contract at Bramall Lane.
Gerrard joined United for training earlier this month after injuries to Paddy Kenny and Ian Bennett.
The 33-year-old did enough in training to warrant Neil Warnock offering him a short-term deal.
Gerrard, who spent a loan spell with United in 2003, is looking forward to the challenge at Bramall Lane.
"My contract was up at Forest and they wanted to trim the squad and the wage bill," Gerrard told the club's official website.
"I had a couple of chats with Premiership and Championship clubs but nothing came of it so I trained on my own and went to the gym to keep myself in good shape before Neil Warnock gave me a ring.
"He wanted me to come down and train and it suited both me and the club and, in the end, I've signed until the January transfer window.
"Every Premiership club has three goalkeepers and although Paddy is the number one, Ian Bennett has done well in the past couple of games, but everyone knows what I can do from my time here before."
