Nottingham Forest should enter January battle to bring Darlow back to the club

Nottingham Forest could use a new goalkeeper to tighten up their promotion push and offering Karl Darlow the opportunity to return to the club where he started his career could offer them the edge if they battled Leeds and Aston Villa for his signature.

Karl Darlow is reportedly a January goalkeeping target for both Leeds United and Aston Villa, according to the Sun.

The report claims that Newcastle may sanction his departure after he slipped down the pecking order and would demand £4m for his signature.

Another promotion-chasing club who need an improvement between the sticks are Nottingham Forest, where Darlow started his career.

 

He was on the books at the City Ground from 2006 as a young player, making his senior debut in 2010 and made 64 appearances for the club before he left in 2014.

That connection with the club could offer Aitor Karanka the edge in a bid to improve his goalkeeping options, as Costel Pantillimon continues not to look fit for purpose for a club with ambitions to return to the Premier League.

The Spaniard should put himself in that battle with both Marcelo Bielsa and Dean Smith; beating both of them to land a Premier League player would be a major blow and would underline the scale of Forest’s ambitions.

Karanka has been ruthless in revamping his squad since his appointment and bringing Darlow back to Nottingham would be another step in the right direction on that score.
