Nottingham Forest must loan out Ryan Yates again this season

The young midfielder has shone on loan from Nottingham Forest.

Nottingham Forest today announced the exciting news that Ryan Yates has agreed a new contract with the club. The 20-year-old has signed a new three-year deal at the club, suggesting Nottingham Forest do see a first-team future for the player at the club.

But, after handing him his new deal, Nottingham Forest should now let him go back out on loan again.

The fact is, Yates will not become an immediate first-team regular at Forest considering the competition for places in his position.

But he is now at a stage where sitting in the stands or playing with the development team is beyond him.

He was on loan at Notts County and Scunthorpe United in League Two and League One respectively last season. During his spell with the two sides Yates managed to play 47 times, scoring eight and assisting four goals in a brilliant season in central midfield.


If Forest want him to continue growing then they have to let him head out on a similar loan spell next season.

A perfect option would be a team like Burton Albion. Local and recently relegated to League One, Yates would be in good hands at the Pirelli Stadium.

Wherever he does end up, Yates should not spend next season wasting away in the Forest fold.

    We have zero cover for Bridcutt and Watson now Vaughan has been made a free agent and moved across the river to Notts County, so it doesn’t make sense to loan him out again. I think he should be slowly integrated into the team by coming on for the last 20 minutes or so on a Saturday and getting a full game in midweek when Bridcutt or Watson get a slight knock or just to keep them fit – they’re not exactly spring chickens anymore and one or the other would benefit from being rested
