Nottingham Forest will have their sights set on securing promotion to the Premier League in the current campaign, with a successful January transfer window helping their cause massively.
Aitor Karanka has managed to turn things around since arriving at the City Ground, with a play-off spot now being their main aim from here on in. However, it appears as if one of the club’s outcasts is attracting interest, as according to The Mirror (via Nottingham Live), Portsmouth are prepared to offer £500,000 for Ryan Yates.
Portsmouth are keen on completing a deal for Nottingham Forest youngster Ryan Yates.
It’s understood that Yates is valued at £500,000 by Forest with Pompey prepared to stump up the asking price to take him to the south coast.
However, the midfielder could attract even more interest in January as Hull City remain interested in the 21-year-old, with boss Nigel Adkins likely to reignite his interest, while Rotherham were another Championship side hoping to clinch his signature.
Ryan Yates is definitely one for the future having impressed during his time on loan at a number of clubs in the Football League in recent years. But, it looks as if he is heading for an inevitable exit in the January transfer window, with a number of clubs interested in his services and Portsmouth happy to pay his asking price.
Although, Aitor Karanka will be more focused on securing his own signings, with promotion in mind.
