Nottingham Forest were linked with a move to sign Kristian Pedersen from Birmingham City in January.

The versatile defender has been playing on the left of a three-man defence this season but he can also play left-back.

Forest didn’t end up signing Pedersen in the end and yesterday, the Danish performer was in fantastic form for Birmingham.

Pedersen helped the Blues to a 2-1 win over Bristol City and showcased his class in the process.

It was Football Insider that linked Forest with a move for the defender and it remains to be seen whether he’s still on the radar.

Forest did sign Jonathan Panzo as a left-sided defensive option and he could become a future star at the City Ground.

Max Lowe will likely return to Sheffield United though and a left-back could remain on the radar.

Yesterday, he showcased exactly why Forest decided to look at him in the January transfer window.

He won a remarkable five headers, six interceptions and made four clearances as Birmingham claimed a big win.

Pedersen will be out of contract in the summer and he will surely have plenty of clubs looking at him.

The financial situation at Birmingham isn’t brilliant and that might scupper plans for a new contract to be offered.

Pedersen would be useful Forest signing

The player capped once by Denmark has featured 17 times as a centre-back this season and nine times as a left-back.

That level of versatility would help him thrive in a Steve Cooper set-up with the head coach liking his squad to feature plenty of flexibility.

Pedersen would be a useful addition to the squad. He is an experienced campaigner in the Championship and would surely welcome a move to the City Ground.

Forest will need some players in the summer. As a result, Pedersen would welcome a decent addition to Cooper’s squad.
