Nottingham Forest defender Mohamed Drager has secured a loan move today, joining Swiss side Luzern until the end of the season.

Forest signed Drager from Olympiacos in August, snapping up the defender in what appeared to be an Evangelos Marinakis special.

Drager arrived with international experience with Tunisia whilst he had featured in Germany with Paderborn and Freiburg.

The 25-year-old predominantly plays as a right back but Forest fans have yet to actually see Drager in action.

Unfortunately, Drager has never played a single game for Forest and wasn’t picked by Steve Cooper.

Forest then went and signed another right back in January as Canadian ace Richie Laryea arrived from Toronto.

That at least helped cover for Drager’s international commitments with Tunisia, but Drager now won’t play for Forest at all this season.

Forest have confirmed Drager’s departure as he has joined Swiss side Luzern until the summer. Luzern currently sit bottom of Switzerland’s top flight.

Luzern will now hope that Drager can help spark a revival, which is badly needed given that they have won just once in 19 league games this season.

Luzern sporting director Remo Meyer has now stated that they are ‘convinced’ that Drager can be a quality addition.

Meyer also called Drager ‘fast and agile’, believing he can make an immediate impact in Switzerland.

It already feels like a long way back for Drager at Forest, but you just never know – and an impressive stint with Luzern could just put him in Cooper’s plans.
