Nottingham Forest Director of Professional Development, Gary Brazil, has raved about Tyrese Fornah after his latest Shrewsbury Town display.

Salop produced one of the shocks of the day in the EFL as they thrashed runaway League One leaders Rotherham United 3-0.

It was a superb performance by Fornah who was handed another start by boss Steve Cotterill.

The Forest youngster extended his City Ground stay until 2024 shortly before joining Shrewsbury until the end of the season.

He is honing his skills with Cotterill’s team and he will hope to make an impact on the first team at Forest next season.

Fornah knows all about the third tier. During 2020/21 he spent the full campaign with Plymouth, making 44 appearances in Ryan Lowe’s team.

The young central midfielder was largely impressive and it was perhaps a surprise that he wasn’t loaned out prior to this season.

With Forest embarking on their first-ever Premier League 2 campaign, however, they chose to keep the youngster around.

The 22-year-old has made 12 appearances for Salop and he’s now commanding a start in Cotterill’s team on a regular basis.

Fornah will hope to stay in the team and continue showing Forest what a capable performer he is.

What has Brazil said about Forest talent Fornah?

It’s fair to say that he was mightily impressed with the youngster’s latest display for Shrewsbury.

He was in fine form as the visitors blew away a Rotherham team that is vying for a place in the Championship.

It seems as though Brazil thinks Fornah is developing nicely. He will hope to be in the Forest dressing room next season and competing for a place.

In Steve Cooper, Forest have a manager who is willing to trust youth. As a result, Fornah will fancy his chances of making an impact during 2022/23.
