According to The Nottingham Post, right back Saidy Janko would be interested in securing a permanent move to Nottingham Forest, and the club should be very tempted.
The Switzerland under-21 international is on loan from Porto, but is starting to make a name for himself at The City Ground.
He had to spend the first few weeks of his stay behind Sam Byram and Tendayi Darikwa. After Byram sustained an injury, it looked as though Janko would feature, but he was still behind Darikwa in manager Aitor Karanka’s estimations. However, the 22-year-old has started in The Reds’ last three fixtures, as the club appear to be coming into form.
Janko has impressed in all three displays this season, and if this form continues, it would be foolish to turn down the option of signing him. With Byram only with the club for a season, they will need options there for the future. There is no one better, therefore, than Janko (valued at £2.7m on Transfermarkt.co.uk), a player that is already established at the club.
Of course, people should not jump the gun after a few good performances by a player, after all, there must have been a reason why Karanka did not pick him initially. However, he looks to be developing into the first choice right back at the club, regardless of whether Byram is injured.
The Reds face Stoke in the League Cup third round on Wednesday, before travelling to Blackburn on Saturday, hoping to extend their unbeaten run in the Championship to four games.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
