Nottingham Forest have appointed Aitor Karanka as their new manager on a two-and-a-half-year contract, the English Championship club announced on Monday.

The Spaniard succeeds Mark Warburton, who was sacked at the end of last month, and takes over with two-time European Cup winners Forest currently 14th in the second tier.

"We are very pleased to have reached terms with Aitor Karanka to become the manager of Nottingham Forest," said club chairman Nicholas Randall.

"He is an exceptional candidate who fully subscribes to the vision of the club's owners and board for the future of the club."

Academy boss Gary Brazil has been in temporary charge and oversaw Sunday's 4-2 victory over holders Arsenal in the third round of the FA Cup.

"I want to thank Gary Brazil, his staff and the players for their professionalism and loyalty in the last few days," said Randall.

"In particular, the performance against Arsenal was truly outstanding and shows the potential of this fantastic club."
