Further details emerge on long-term future of influential Nottingham Forest loan player



Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough have not held talks over Djed Spence’s long-term future, with the wing-back set to remain at Forest until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old joined the Reds in the summer window on loan and has really impressed at the City Ground, with his performances a key reason as to why Steve Cooper’s side have climbed the Championship table.

Therefore, there was a real worry at Forest that parent club Boro would recall Spence this month, particularly as Chris Wilder is now in charge at the Riverside Stadium.

However, that hasn’t happened, with the youngster remaining in the East Midlands for the rest of the campaign.

Moving forward though, it’s unclear where Spence’s future lies, as Nottinghamshire Live confirmed that there is no agreement as part of the extended loan, with talks seemingly set for the summer when a decision will be made.

Both clubs are in the hunt for a play-off finish this season, with Middlesbrough currently sitting 7th in the table, five points and two places above Forest.

The verdict

This makes sense as there are a lot of important factors that could happen in the next few months, including whether either side are in the Premier League next season.

So, whilst you would imagine Forest would want to keep Spence no matter what, it’s something that they can address in the summer when things will be clearer.

For now, all Spence will be focused on is helping Cooper’s men to a top six finish. He made it clear he wanted to stay at the club, and it’s now about maintaining the good form he has shown.
