Nottingham Forest will be hoping to enjoy what could be a first transfer window of many under Martin O’Neill, with a couple of signings helping him secure a play-off spot.
Forest haven’t exactly done badly up until this point in the current campaign but they have lacked consistency, which was obviously seen as an issue in the eyes of the club’s ambitious owners.
O’Neill’s arrival could bring about a number of changes in the first-team ranks, with potential departures and new signings making their way to the City Ground. Indeed, the Midlands club have had to deal with a number of underperforming players and lack cover in some areas, so the Northern Irishman will be sure to iron over any issues.
With that being said, O’Neill must make ONE of these TWO players his marquee Nottingham Forest signing…
Kevin McDonald is as good as it gets when it comes to midfielders in the Championship. He was sensational during Fulham’s promotion-winning campaign last time out and also enjoyed an impressive spell at Wolves.
The Scotsman currently plays his football in the Premier League at Fulham but his chances have been limited in the current campaign, and the London club are now willing to let him leave on loan.
Although, the potential transfer wouldn’t involve a heap of cash, securing the services of the midfielder would take Forest’s midfield to another level, as he rarely gives the ball away and does all the simple things perfectly.
Scott McKenna hasn’t been linked with a move to the City Ground up until this point at all, but Forest should think about joining the race for the central defender who has attracted interest from Celtic, Wolves and Aston Villa.
The Scotsman has established himself as one of the hottest topics in the Scottish Premiership this season, and he has all the defensive qualities required to become a future star of the game.
O’Neill should go all out to sign the 22-year-old as Forest are currently lacking numbers and quality at the heart of the defence with injuries taking their toll.
