Nottingham Forest are looking to bring Nathan Redmond back to English football as he looks set to leave Besiktas.

The man who joined the Turkish club from Southampton will be out of contract during the summer.

Forest appointed Ross Wilson as the club’s Chief Football Officer recently and he’s signed Redmond previously.

He took the winger to St Mary’s Stadium from Norwich and he enjoyed a decent time of things on the south coast.

According to Fanatik, the Reds will try and sign Redmond at the same time as Romain Saiss who has been linked for some time.

Redmond has taken quite well to life in Turkey and this season he’s scored six goals and claimed six assists.

The 29-year-old signed for the club last summer but they surprisingly only gave him a one-year deal.

At Southampton, he spent six years at the club and made over 230 appearances, scoring 30 times for the club.

It did come as a bit of a shock when Ralph Hasenhuttl chose to sell him, given that the Austrian boss was a huge fan.

In 2019, he called the forward a ‘special’ player after a performance against Wolves and seeing him leave shocked the Saints fans.

This would be an intriguing signing and on a free transfer he could prove a useful addition to the squad.

Redmond is a quick player with an abundance of skill and he can also play in a number of forward positions.

At 29, however, he will perhaps be considered as having his best days firmly behind him as a Premier League player.

Still, Redmond would bring some depth to a squad that has sometimes been found lacking during the current campaign.

His wealth of experience could be integral to the club and on a free transfer it’s one that does make a bit of sense.
