Three In Red On Loan
Nottingham Forest have recruited three new players on a one season loan; Juan Sánchez Miño, Vito Mannone and Shane Duffy.
has negotiated the loans of three players, who will all be present in Forest
's assault on the Championship
The first of the trio to join was Argentine
defender, Juan Sánchez Miño
, a Boca Juniors
product who impressed Nottingham
scouts enough to warrant an official offer. Sánchez Miño
primarily operates as a full-back but has been known to play in the center of the pitch.
The second to be enlisted was Arsenal
keeper, Vito Mannone
. The 24 Italian was deemed as the third best keeper in the squad, and therefore surplus to requirements for this season, meaning that he could make his way in to the Nottingham
The third and final signing was Shane Duffy
, an Everton
center-half of only 20 years. It seems that Everton
saw his loan as a good opportunity to garner up experience. However, Duffy
may not yet be good enough to play first team for Forest
, meaning he may have just been a back-up in Cole
It does not seem Andy Cole
is done with his deals yet, as the window is only a week old- well over a month to keep making deals. To add to that, it is believed that Forest
have several million pounds to play with, having spent very little yet.
