Nottingham Forest have reportedly made an approach regarding the availability of Brighton and Hove Albion defender Shane Duffy.
Duffy is currently out on loan at Celtic, but he has endured a disappointing time in Glasgow since moving to Neil Lennon’s side.
The 29-year-old has made 21 appearances for Celtic, and despite scoring three times, his form in defence has been sloppy.
According to the Scottish Sun, Forest have made an approach to Brighton regarding Duffy’s availability, as Chris Hughton weighs up a move for his former defender.
Duffy was a regular alongside Lewis Dunk during Hughton’s tenure of Brighton, and he is a player who the Forest boss knows well.;
Whether Forest need another defender or not, though, is another matter, with Hughton recently saying that he would like to strengthen his side’s attacking options this month.
Here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions to this potential arrival…
I’m being an optimist here… but could this possibly be Figs replacement if rumours of him being home sick are true? If it’s to replace Worrall I give up 😂🙃

Would be bizarre wouldn't it.

Really hope it’s not true. CB is the one position in which we already have quality and depth.

Why do we need another bloody defender? Unless of course Worrall is going!🤬 #nffc

Hope this isn’t true. We don’t need a CB. Unless they’re planning to sell Worrall.
