Alex Milosevic was a popular player during his short spell at Nottingham Forest and his career looks set to go full circle.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Swedish performer is set to return to AIK on a free transfer.

The centre-back came through the youth ranks with the European giants before signing professional terms with Vasalunds in 2009.

Two years late he signed for AIK once again and would go onto make 119 appearances for the club.

He was signed at a time when the club were in desperate need of defensive recruits.

Yohan Benalouane checked in at a similar time with pretty much every centre-back at the club injured or suspended.

Milosevic became a instant hit. He was strong in the tackle, showcased strong positional sense and boasted the ability to play out from the back.

It seemed quite bizarre that he was axed when Sabri Lamouchi arrived at the club.

 

He played in the majority of pre-season games under the Frenchman, who then preferred other options when the season began.

It took the defender a little while to find a club after being released by the Reds.

He spent eight months as a free agent before heading to Denmark on a short-term deal with Vejle.

After just 12 games he was once again placed on the scrapheap and now looks set for an emotional return to AIK.

Was Milosevic hard done by at Forest?

Initially, it seemed as though he had been, although the proof afterwards has suggested otherwise.

The Reds were pretty good at the back throughout last season as they went in search of a play-off place – backing up Lamouchi’s judgement to offload him.

Also, it did take Milosevic a considerable amount of time to find another club and that is perhaps telling.

He only played 12 times for the Reds and was largely impressive during his time at the City Ground.

Forest are blessed with some pretty good central defenders, however, and the decision to part with Milosevic hasn’t really come back to bite the club.
