Nottingham Forest: Reds given fresh Djed Spence hope

Nottingham Forest: Reds given fresh Djed Spence hope -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest have been given fresh hope of signing right-back Djed Spence ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, following a promising transfer update from Football League World.

The Lowdown: Spence enjoys memorable season

Steve Cooper’s side enjoyed an unforgettable 2021/22 season, going from rock-bottom of the Championship to earning promotion to the Premier League.

Spence stood out as a key man for Forest throughout the campaign, tearing down the right flank and scoring three goals and registering four assists in the process.

The 21-year-old was only on loan at the City Ground from Middlesbrough, however, and Tottenham have been strongly linked with acquiring his signature.

The Latest: Forest twist still possible

According to Football League World, there is hope from Forest that they could still end up signing Spence on a permanent deal this summer.

A move back to the City Ground is described as ‘not out of the question’, with Boro ‘growing impatient with Spurs’.

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

The Verdict: Would be huge

This is an exciting update, without question, and if Forest were able to sign Spence it would feel like a significant piece of business, given his impact last season and the interest from a Champions League side.

Will Forest stay in the Premier League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

At just 21, he has such a bright future ahead of him and he is part of an exciting generation of English right-backs that includes Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James. Ian Wright hailed Spence’s ‘combative, technical, swashbuckling’ performance against Arsenal in the FA Cup last season, highlighting exactly the impact he has at his best.

Should he join Forest permanently, a move for Liverpool’s Neco Williams would presumably be off the table, with both he and Spence surely expecting to start at their respective new clubs in 2022/23.
