Nottingham Forest youngster Tyrese Fornah signed a contract extension in January prior to signing for Shrewsbury Town on loan.

The 22-year-old had featured in two Carabao Cup games during 2021/22 but was restricted to just one Championship outing.

Fornah was set to see his contract expire in the summer but Steve Cooper clearly sees him as someone who can feature in the future.

Last season, he made 44 appearances for Plymouth as they established themselves as a League One outfit.

He had hoped that he would be called upon ahead of this season but a stubborn Chris Hughton approach saw him down the pecking order.

Now, he’s back playing football again and last night he produced an eye-catching performance during a 0-0 draw with Rotherham.

Steve Cotterill works with one of League One’s lowest budgets and the Millers currently sit top of the table.

A point was the least Salop deserved and some statistics from Who Scored highlight Fornah’s brilliance.

Defensively he was brilliant, making three tackles and two clearances from his central midfield role.

He also finished the game with a 70% pass success ratio from his 23 passes and attempted two long balls.

Fornah should get plenty of chances under Cotterill and with David Davis now injured the position should become his own.

Future star: Fornah could shine at Forest

The academy graduate could find himself thrust into first-team action next season.

James Garner will return to Manchester United, whilst Jack Colback isn’t getting any younger.

Cafu has hardly played and Braian Ojeda had fallen off the radar in recent weeks.

That leaves Ryan Yates as the one player you can put your hat on in the midfield engine room for 2022/23.

Fornah offers something a little bit different and the fact that Cooper has offered him a deal suggests he’s part of his future plans.

A League One loan looks ideal and he needs to continue the good performances and keep his fingers crossed for a Forest chance.
