“It’s a proud moment, not only for me, but for my family as well,” Elanga said. “It’s the perfect next step for me in my career.
“It’s a big step and I’m really looking forward to playing in front of the Forest fans at the City Ground. I had interest from elsewhere, but for me, Nottingham Forest feels like the perfect place.”
