Nottingham Forest: Nuno Da Costa ‘considering’ Caen return

Nottingham Forest: Nuno Da Costa 'considering' Caen return - Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest attacker Nuno Da Costa is ‘considering’ a return to Caen this summer, according to a fresh transfer rumour on Friday.

The Lowdown: Da Costa not needed at Forest

The 31-year-old spent the whole of last season on loan at Caen, having been deemed surplus to requirements by then-manager Chris Hughton.

Da Costa is now back at Forest as the new Premier League season gets started but it is clear that Steve Cooper also doesn’t see a future for him at the club.

For that reason, it is expected that the Cape Verdean will depart the City Ground before deadline day ends, either permanently or on a temporary basis.

The Latest: Caen return mooted

According to Ouest France [via Sport Witness], Da Costa is ‘considering’ a move back to Caen for the 2022/23 campaign, despite there being strong interest from Auxerre, with a two-year deal reportedly agreed.

That transfer ‘may not be so good’ now, paving the way for a possible return to Ligue 2 outfit Caen instead.

Which one of these kit manunfactuers have never produced Forest shirts?

The Verdict: Right decision for all parties

Da Costa is a talented player – he has been described as a ‘real leader’ by Caen president Olivier Pickeu – but it hasn’t worked out for him at Forest, with only 13 appearances coming his way and no goals scored.

Would Pinamonti be a good signing for Forest?





For that reason, it makes complete sense for the Reds to either get him off their wage bill for good or at least loan him out again and allow him regular playing time.

It seems nailed-on that Da Costa will depart this summer, and while going back to Caen may appeal, signing a permanent two-year deal at Auxerre wouldn’t go amiss from a financial point of view for the Reds.
