As Aitor Karanka reshapes the Nottingham Forest squad, hoping to prompt a push for promotion, it’s perhaps inevitable that some players will be leaving the club as well as some fresh faces coming in.
Today, it has been confirmed by the BBC, that Eric Lichaj has left the club.
The American international, after making 190 appearances for Nottingham Forest and scoring six goals, during a five-year stint at the City Ground, has joined our Championship rivals Hull City.
Lichaj, 29-years-of-age, has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with the Humberside club.
Commenting on his move, Lichaj is quoted by our source as having remarked,
“I’m looking forward to wearing this kit and can’t wait to represent the club.”
I guess that’s the standard fodder every new signing trots out when they join a new club.
Here at Vital Forest, we’d like to wish Eric all the best at his new club and also thank him for his dedication to the Forest cause.
When our paths inevitably cross this coming season, I’m sure Eric will get a decent reception from the Forest faithful.
