Roderick Miranda looks the perfect recruit for Nottingham Forest and deal looks simple on paper

Nottingham Forest need a new centre-back in January.

Nottingham Forest have recently been found short in the centre-back position. Injuries have left the Reds struggling in the heart of defence with many now wondering why Joe Worrall was allowed to join Rangers on loan.

Bringing in a centre-back, considering the injury rouble suffered by Michael Dawson, Michael Hefele and Tobias Figueiredo will surely be something that Forest aim to do in January.

There is one player out there that appears to be a perfect Forest fit.

Roderick Miranda helped Wolverhampton Wanderers to the Championship title last season. However, first-team football was far from guaranteed at Molineux and he was sent on loan in the summer.

 

The team he joined was Olympiakos who are, of course, also owned by Forest supremo Evangelos Marinakis.

Nottingham Forest have done good business with Olympiakos before and the Portuguese defender has largely been a back-up player in Greece this season.

He is also a Jorge Mendes client. The Portuguese super-agent helped Forest sign Joao Carvalho, Diogo Goncalves and Gil Dias in the summer.

With his help and the fact Miranda is currently on loan at Olympiakos, bringing him to the City Ground looks entirely possible. Perhaps this is where Forest should be turning their attention for an easy centre-back solution.
