According to Nottinghamshire Live, Idris Kadded has been released by Nottingham Forest and has been handed a trial at Nimes. The 20-year-old only joined Forest in January, but he didn’t do enough at u23 level to earn himself a long-term deal at the City Ground. Kadded’s future lies away from the East Midlands, but whether he can impress in France remains to be seen.

The young striker has reportedly been training with Nimes ahead of Saturday’s trip to Guingamp. Kadded has spent 18 months in the United Kingdom, representing Dundee United u20s between January 20, 2018 and July 1, 2018 before he joined Forest (January 1, 2019 – June 30, 2019), but a permanent return to France could be on the cards.

Kadded has played for ES Troyes AC, Nizza and FC Vaulx-en-Velin in his home country and is now pushing for Ligue 1 side. Nimes are currently eighth in the division with 52 points from 36 games. Denis Bouanga is their top goalscorer (7) while Teji Savanier has made the most assists (13).

With Kadded failing to break into any side’s first-team yet, it’s more likely that he will represent Nimes’ reserve team than senior squad if his trial is successful.
