Nottingham Forest fans have been delighted with the way that both Died Spence and Max Lowe have performed for the club so far this campaign, with many calling for them to be added to the side on a permanent basis.
Lowe has featured six times so far this season but has looked sharp and has a goal and an assist to his name, while Died Spence has looked just as bright and lively on the other side of the field.
The 21-year old has bagged a goal of his own and they’ve both been highly influential since Steve Cooper took charge at the City Ground. They’ve made each side of the pitch their own and if they continue in this rich vein of form, then they could both remain highly influential as Forest look to try and climb the league table.
Quiz: Are these 22 Nottingham Forest stats real or fake?
The issue for Forest fans is that both of them are on loan from Middlesbrough and Sheffield United respectively. Now, fans have taken to Twitter to voice their opinions on the two, with many calling for both of them to be brought in on a more permanent basis when possible.

Terrible, just terrible. Middlesbrough and Sheff Utd should definitely look to sell these two on the cheap.

Steve Cooper may have a task on his hands to get them both on a full-time basis – especially considering they both come from Championship rivals – but if they’re enjoying their football at the City Ground, getting regular action and thriving as players, then who knows what the future holds in terms of them agreeing to a more permanent deal.
Either way, Forest and their fans will certainly be hoping that they continue to impress on a weekly basis. If they do, then the club will have two extremely valuable assets on their hands in their bid to try and climb back towards the top six rather than battle near the bottom three relegation places.
Djed Spence and Max Lowe have both proven to be superb signings since their moves over the course of the summer. They’ve commanded their respective flanks and, as things stand, are nailed on to start each week for Forest.
It’ll be difficult for the club to try and secure them permanently, especially knowing that if they continue to perform in the Championship, then their respective parent clubs will know they can cut it in this division. If the Blades and Boro both end up staying in the second tier, then they’ll want them to come back and play just as well for them rather than letting them leave.
For now, Forest can enjoy them strutting their stuff at the City Ground. If they can indeed secure a permanent move for them in the future, then it would be a masterstroke by Steve Cooper.
