(Reuters) - Belgian international Divock Origi has joined Nottingham Forest on a season-long loan from AC Milan, the Premier League side announced on Friday.


Origi joins Forest's last-minute signings, along with Irish centre-back Andrew Omobamidele, Ivorian midfielder Ibrahim Sangare, England winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, Greek goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos, Argentine defender Nicolas Dominguez and Portuguese left-back Nuno Tavares.


"Divock returns to the Premier League to further add strength to our squad. We wanted to bolster our attacking options and Divock certainly helps us to do that," Forest Chief Football Officer Ross Wilson said in a statement.


Origi joined Milan on loan from Liverpool last summer after making 36 appearances in all competitions, including eight in the Champions League.


The 28-year-old joined the Merseyside club in 2014 and made 175 appearances, scoring 41 goals and providing 18 assists.


During his eight-year spell he won an FA Cup, League Cup and Premier League title with Jurgen Klopp's side, as well as scoring in semi-finals and final of Liverpool's 2019 UEFA Champions League-winning campaign.


Origi, who has 32 caps for Belgium, made his international debut in May 2014.


Forest visit Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday. They are 14th in the league standings, with three points from three games.
