Manchester United Legend Could Offer Banished Nottingham Forest Star Joe Worrall a Transfer Lifeline in January

The Championship side Middlesbrough is making moves to secure the signature of Nottingham Forest’s Joe Worrall, who has fallen out of favor at his current club. With the possibility of a loan deal leading to a permanent move, Boro manager Michael Carrick is eyeing up the 26-year-old defender. Additionally, Worrall’s fellow Forest player Scott McKenna is also seeking a new home amidst his lack of game time. While recent reports have suggested that both players have been sidelined from the first team, it is not due to any behavioral issues, but rather contract and agent disputes. The potential transfer of these key players could significantly impact the upcoming January transfer window.

Middlesbrough set to make a move for Nottingham Forest’s Joe Worrall in January transfer window

Championship club Middlesbrough are gearing up to make an initial offer to sign Nottingham Forest’s Joe Worrall in the upcoming January transfer window. Boro are looking to sign Worrall on loan with the possibility of making the deal permanent if they secure promotion to the Premier League.

Worrall, who recently signed a new deal with Forest, has fallen out of favor and could be on his way out in January. Middlesbrough manager Michael Carrick, the former Manchester United star, is reportedly interested in bringing Worrall to his side.

Additionally, Forest defender Scott McKenna is also seeking a new home due to lack of game time and the need to stay sharp for Euro 2024. Both Worrall and McKenna have been instructed to train separately from the first team and arrive for training at a different time.

The decision to sideline the defenders is said to be related to contracts and agents rather than behavioral issues. Worrall and McKenna played crucial roles in Forest’s promotion to the Premier League in 2022 but have found themselves out of favor in recent matches.
