Nottingham Forest have made their 23rd signing of the summer after completing a deal for goalkeeper Adnan Kanuric.
The 22-year-old has been without a club since the start of July after being released by FK Sarejevo, but he has now been snapped up by the Premier League club.
Forest confirmed the news on Tuesday afternoon with a brief statement which read: ‘Nottingham Forest are delighted to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Adnan Kanuric. Welcome to the Reds, Adnan!’

Forest have made a number of big signings, including bringing in Jesse Lingard
They also signed Morgan Gibbs-White for a club-record transfer fee from Wolves
Kanuric will be integrated into the U21 squad after his move to England.
It has been an extremely busy summer at the City Ground, with Steve Cooper’s side bringing in a host of new players, including Jesse Lingard, Morgan Gibbs-White and Neco Williams, to try and help them stay in the top flight.
The transfer window closed at the start of the month, but the club have still dipped into the free agent market, signing former Tottenham defender Serge Aurier and now Kanuric.
Kanuric has spent time in England before, having been on Stoke’s books between 2018 and 2020.
He made five appearances for the club’s U-18s but failed to make a senior appearance.
The young shot-stopper spent the majority of his youth career in Austria, where he was born, but he has also had spells in Germany, Slovakia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Forest spent big to sign promising full-back Neco Williams from Liverpool
Dean Henderson has established himself as Forest’s No.1, with Kanuric set to step into the Under-21s
He holds Bosnian citizenship and has represented Bosnia and Herzegovina from U-16 to U21 level.
Forest currently have Dean Henderson as their first-choice goalkeeper and that looks unlikely to change after his positive start to the season.
The Manchester United loanee has already saved two penalties this term from England team-mates Declan Rice and Harry Kane.
Wayne Hennessey has acted as Henderson’s understudy in the opening weeks of the campaign and Kanuric looks set to remain in the youth ranks barring injury to Henderson or the experienced Welshman.
