Nottingham Forest youngster Victor Sodeinde has joined National League North outfit Hereford on loan for a month, according to the non-league club’s official website.

The 19-year-old has been a regular fixture in Jimmy Gilligan’s under-23 team this season. His impressive form has seen Forest fan Russell Slade take him on loan for the next month’s fixtures.

The Forest youngster has welcomed the move and is chomping at the bit to get going with his new club.

He told Hereford’s official website: “I’m looking forward to getting going and seeing what I can achieve.

“I like playing off the defender’s shoulder, getting in behind the back four and I like to think I’ve got a knack of scoring goals.”

Slade boasts lots of managerial experience in the Football League. The likeable manager is delighted to have signed the striker.

He added: “Victor is a strong player, he can play in any of the three positions up top. He’s powerful, quick, effective and has a good physical presence.”

Sodeinde signed for Forest from Maidstone United and has looked sharp this season under the management of Gilligan.

Playing men’s football can only benefit the youngster and he will hope to score lots of goals and possibly earn an extension to his existing temporary agreement.

Current Forest first-team players Matty Cash and Joe Worrall both spent time on loan earlier in their career.

The duo went on loan to League Two outfit Dagenham and Redbridge prior to making their Forest debuts. The stint away from the City Ground worked wonders and they are now both thriving as first-team regulars under Sabri Lamouchi.
