Some comments have emerged that will suggest Loris Benito is desperate to sign for Nottingham Forest.

The Switzerland star has been discussing his exit from Bordeaux with BlueWin, via Girodans4Ever and the defender is keen to get back playing.

Benito left the Ligue 1 outfit in August after playing for just over an hour of the opening game of the campaign.

Forest are in short supply of left-sided defenders. Max Lowe is injured, whilst Jordi Osei-Tutu favours playing on the right.

Gaetan Bong is at the club, although it’s fair to say that his days as a Forest player are probably numbered.

Benito has been training with Forest for the last couple of weeks and does look set to be handed a deal by the club.

He typically operates at left-back, although he can also play as a centre-half if called upon.

Speaking to BlueWin, via Girodans4Ever, it would seem as though Benito can’t wait to sign terms at Forest.

He said: “I have to get back on my feet somewhere as quickly as possible; in view of the World Cup in Qatar.

“I am in a privileged position to be able to make such a decision. And I am in good faith and confident that something new is going to happen.”

Benito could be useful signing for Forest

With a point to prove ahead of next winter’s World Cup, Benito won’t be coming to collect a salary and rest on his laurels.

He will be keen to get straight into the team and start imposing himself on the Championship.

Forest are desperate for a left-back and Benito is a natural option in that position.

As an uncompromising player, he can also play at centre-back and as a result, Forest signing him looks like a no-brainer.
