Any ideas of another player I can spend all summer wishing Forest sign?

I knew this would happen if the club didn’t hurry up. It is officially the end of, what was a relatively short era. Sam Byram won’t be joining Nottingham Forest, at least for the foreseeable future, having signed this morning for Norwich City for a reported £750k.

Sam Byram spent the minority of last season on loan at the City Ground, and the majority of it on the injury table, having picked up a knee injury during Forest’s 3-1 win over Newcastle in the Carabao Cup back in August. There were rumours that Byram was a target for Forest, as a way of finishing what he started last season, although we don’t know if there was ever an official bid from the club.

Whilst naturally I’m disappointed that this deal didn’t come through, that sentiment hasn’t been felt by the some in the Nottingham Forest fan base. It seems that his injury history, not just his most recent one has put to bed any positivity they might have had over his playing ability. Many fans washed their hands of the whole affair, just resigning to the fact they were never going to compete with recently promoted Norwich’s funds.
