Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Adnan Kanuric appears to still be training with the Reds despite getting released earlier this summer. The stopper who hasn’t made a senior appearance has been snapped on the training ground with the squad now back for pre-season training.
Forest signed Kanuric from FK Sarajevo in 2022. He was added as a player who had played senior football before but as someone who would try and rediscover himself with the club’s under-21 ranks.
The goalkeeper spent some time out on loan during his time on the books at Forest. He went to Oxford City for three months at the end of last season, making 13 appearances for the club and keeping six clean sheets.
During his time at FK Sarajevo, he spent some time with the first team. He made three appearances for them before the chance to join Forest came about.
The Reds announced their retained list at the start of June. Included among a host of players was Kanuric, with the club choosing not to give him a new deal.

However, it would seem as though he’s been invited back to the club for pre-season training. He’s been spotted in the latest training video uploaded by the club earlier this week on YouTube.

It doesn’t seem as though the player will be earning a new deal with the Reds. At 22-years-old, he will need to register as part of the club’s 25-man squad and that just won’t happen.
Kanuric is perhaps just staying with the club due to a current shortage of goalkeepers. Wayne Hennessey isn’t back yet, with the players who went off on international duty enjoying an extended break.
Forest still hope to add Dean Henderson to their ranks before the season starts. It’s proving a long-running saga at the moment but it’s believed that a deal is in place for the loanee to return on a permanent basis.
Kanuric looks to be merely keeping his eye in ahead of his next chapter. Nonetheless, it’s good that Steve Cooper has allowed the youngster a chance to stay fit as he begins his search for another club this summer.
