‘Fantastic news’ – Plenty of Nottingham Forest fans were loving 2013 player update – But it didn’t go as planned



Nottingham Forest supporters, cast your minds back to 23rd August 2013, where a key player penned a new deal with the club.

It was the day that Karl Darlow signed a four-year-deal with the Reds after a number of impressive performances between the sticks.

But it didn’t go as planned for Forest, let’s just say that.

See how Forest supporters reacted to the news of his contract extension at the time.

Darlow left the club just a couple of seasons after signing the new deal, as he moved to Newcastle when they were in the Championship alongside the Reds.

He made 64 appearances in total for Forest, and owes the club a considerable amount of praise for giving him his big break in senior football.

But he departed the City Ground with Jamaal Lascelles for an undisclosed fee, with the pair heading back to the club for the remainder of the season on loan.

Darlow has gone on to be a regular for the Magpies, but has seen his first-team opportunities limited in recent seasons, due to the emergence of Martin Dubravka who has become first-choice under Rafa Benitez.

There were rumours circulating from the Nottingham Post, that Darlow could return to Forest in the January transfer window, but a move failed to materialise.

But a return to the City Ground shouldn’t be ruled out, with Darlow still struggling to make the matchday squad at times this season for Newcastle.

Nottingham Forest would certainly welcome him back with open arms, and they could benefit from having a goalkeeper of his quality in their squad.
