(Reuters) – Nottingham Forest said on Friday the club had signed South Korea striker Hwang Ui-jo from French side Girondins Bordeaux and loaned him out to Greek champions Olympiakos Pireaus for the rest of the season.

Hwang scored 11 goals for Bordeaux in Ligue 1 last season as the former champions were relegated to the second tier.

The 29-year-old has 47 caps for South Korea.

Newly promoted Forest are 10th in the Premier League and host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
