Nottingham Forest supporters are already enjoying the moment of having Taiwo Awoniyi in their fold.

The Super Eagles striker joined the Reds from Union Berlin in a reported £17.5m deal this summer.

Nurtured by Unicorn Soccer Academy and Imperial Football Academy, the forward has gotten some minutes in the two pre season games played by Forest.

And fans have been impressed with his impact for Steve Cooper’s side.

On sighting Awoniyi’s picture after the Burton Albion game, Forest fans showered encomiums on the Kwara born footballer.

Rave reviews greeted the picture. One of them wrote: “Our Nigerian Diamond.”

Last season, Taiwo Awoniyi scored 20 goals in all competitions for Union Berlin, including 15 in the German Bundesliga.
