Tom Ince joins Nottingham Forest on short-term loan from Hull City

Nottingham Forest have completed the loan signing of Hull midfielder Tom Ince until Dec. 28.

Reds boss Stuart Pearce had been in talks with the Premier League club for several days, and on Thursday morning Forest announced that an agreement has been reached for the 22-year-old winger to move to the City Ground on a temporary deal.

Pearce is keen to breathe new life into his side's promotion push following a seven-match winless run in the Championship, and Ince will go straight into the Forest squad for Saturday's trip to Huddersfield.

Ince, who Pearce knows well from his time as England under-21s manager, joined Hull from Blackpool in the summer but has found first-team opportunities limited at the KC Stadium and has not been involved in Steve Bruce's squad for the past month.

Ince is a proven quality at Championship level, having scored 18 goals for Blackpool during the 2012-13 season -- a campaign which saw him named the Football League Young Player of the Year.
