The left back was released by QPR in the summer after not making a single appearance for the West London club last season. The defender has recently been training with German side TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, but has opted to join Forest in the Championship. QPR boss, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has put in place a new wage structure to offload any players on a significant wage in order to balance the books, with Traore initially receiving £25,000 a week at Loftus Road. Traore came through the youth ranks at Arsenal, spending time on loan at Portsmouth and even Italian champions Juventus back in 2011, before joining QPR in the Premier League. The full back is expected to put pen to paper at the City Ground imminently and could feature in their friendly against Hull City this Saturday.
