Nottingham Forest could be set to lose one of their summer signing flops in January.
Reports emerging from Spain today suggest that Nottingham Forest’s loan flop Rafa Mir is drawing interest from the Segunda División. Real Zaragoza are said to be preparing a January move for the the Spaniard, according to Spanish media outlet El Periodico de Aragorn.
The 22-year-old arrived at the City Ground in the summer on a season-long loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
He arrived with a big reputation having featured for Spain’s Under-21 side. But he has failed to impress during his stay in Nottingham. He has failed to register either a goal or an assist since he joined the Reds.
And the report from El Periodico de Aragorn claims that Los Maños are willing to offer Mir an escape route in January. Mir is likely to be sent back to Wolves in January. He is unlikely to be at Molineux very long though.
And there will certainly not be too many Nottingham Forest fans complaining.
Nottingham Forest fans were left disgruntled after what they perceived to be a poor decision to not sign another striker in the summer, and they are hoping that the club makes up for that mistake in January.
Lewis Grabban hasn’t had any competition for his place in the team this season. When Mir has been given an opportunity, his performances have largely been poor.
It will be arguably just as important, however, for the Reds to ship out some of the deadwood from the club. There’s no doubt that Mir certainly falls into that category.
