According to Fotospor, Panagiotis Tachtsidis could be on his way out of Nottingham Forest, with Trabzonspor the latest club to show an interest. The 27-year-old was nearing a move to Leece, but reports suggest the Turkish club could now hijack the deal. His lack of playing time at the City Ground makes a January exit almost certain, but the destination remains up in the air.

Tachtsidis joined Forest on a free transfer from Olympiacos over the summer and has made the matchday squad just once in all competitions. The Greek international is highly experienced, having played in the Serie A, Serie B and Greek Superleague, but he failed to impress Aitor Karanka to warrant getting playing time.

With Jack Colback, Claudio Yacob, Ben Watson and Adlene Guedioura for competition in midfield, Tachtsidis doesn’t stand much of a chance of featuring for Forest. Even Liam Bridcutt has struggled for playing time and looks on his way out in the winter transfer window.

Forest’s links to Olympiacos, who are owned by Evangelos Marinakis, isn’t paying off as the Championship club are getting in below-par players not good enough to feature. The Reds certainly won’t stand in Tachtsidis’ way.
