Already during this summer transfer window, Aitor Karanka has been particularly active.
The boss, in order to shape what we are all hoping, will be a promotion chasing season, has spent a substantial amount of cash bringing in a trio of Portuguese players, Joao Carvalho, Diogo Goncalves and Gil Bastiao Dias, all of whom we hope will have successful careers at the City Ground.
However, speculation is growing that Nottingham Forest are looking to add another player to the squad, but a player that will come without a transfer fee.
The local media source, the Nottingham Post, are reporting that the club are looking at adding Jack Robinson to the club.
Robinson, 24-years-of-age, is a left-back and is also a free agent after rejecting the offer of a new contract at our fellow Championship side Queens Park Rangers.
The player started his career at Liverpool before enjoying loan spells with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackpool, before moving to Loftus Road back in 2014.
Robinson, who is also able to play as a centre-back, has played for England at U21 level and could be a useful addition to the club.
Sometimes it’s not necessary to spend big to bring to the club a player who could become a huge asset.
If Forest can persuade Robinson to sign on the dotted line that could be exactly the case on this occasion.
Here at Vital Forest we’ll monitor the situation and report back as deemed appropriate.
