Despite the plethora of new signings that we’ve completed, we’re continually linked with moves for additional recruits. The speculation linking us with a move for Porto’s José Sá continues to circulate.
As Sport Witness reports, the Porto goalkeeper has been linked with a move to the City Ground for much of the summer. That said, the speculation has intensified following the goalie’s absence from Porto’s pre-season game against Everton.
Here’s how Forest supporters have reacted to the speculation on Twitter.
Not too sure about Jose Sà. In the games I’ve seen him in he’s made the odd mistake here and there. Sceptical about this one unfortunately. ????#NFFC

If We Can Get Jose Sà Then We Are Going Too Be In For A Very Good Season #NFFC

I’d like us get Pantilimon as No1, then Jose Sa as back-up! Love link to Vukcevic to be true sounds what we been missing in middle. Grant +????for Marriott seems fair. Bamford/Grabben plus Soudani would add experience to team. Then we just need couple of full-backs #greedy #nffc

Prefer Pants or Ruddy, know the league, this guy is a wildcard, Kapino was supposed to great and look at him

Only 25, only played like 15 games in 2 years, does sound like a backup, to hopefully Pantilimon

It’s always essential to seize an opportunity to strengthen the quality of the squad, and following the arrival of Costel Pantilimon, another goalkeeper is hardly a priority. That said, the presence of another goalie would provide the team with greater depth and invaluable competition.
During his time with Porto, Jose Sa has demonstrated his worth as a capable and defender goalkeeper. He is more than qualified to challenge Pantilimon for a starting place in Karanka’s team.
