Samba Sow will be hoping to make a position impression on Chris Hughton between now and the end of the season for more than one reason.
The 31-year-old will be keen to force his way back into the team and help Forest steer well away from danger, as they continue to languish just above the Championship relegation places.
But the combative midfielder is also out of contract at the City Ground in the summer, so he has his own future to think about in the coming months.
Did these 15 former Nottingham Forest players leave for a higher or lower fee than they arrived for?
Sow has been a key player for the Reds since arriving from Dynamo Moscow last summer, making 42 appearances for the club to date.
He has endured several injury problems since joining Forest, though, which has ultimately divided opinions amongst fans when it comes to debating his future.
Here’s what Forest fans had to say on Sow’s future at the City Ground, and whether or not they would offer him a new deal…
Been a bit of a quiet week for once, as we build up to this weekend's clash with AFC Bournemouth.
