How is Cyrus Christie getting on away from Fulham at Nottingham Forest? We take a look

Nottingham Forest made a host of signings in the summer, with defender Cyrus Christie being one of those.

The right-back won promotion to the Premier League with Fulham last season, making 30 appearances for Scott Parker’s side in all competitions.

But after falling out of favour at Craven Cottage, Christie departed the London club in the summer transfer window, signing for Forest on a season-long loan deal.

Forest have the option to sign Christie permanently at the end of his loan spell, but how has he got on at the City Ground thus far?

Christie has established himself as Forest’s first-choice right-back, following the multi-million pound departure of Matty Cash to Aston Villa in the summer.

The 28-year-old made his debut for the Reds in a 1-0 away defeat to Huddersfield Town, and he has since been an ever-present under Chris Hughton.

The Republic of Ireland international has been a key player for the Reds, and his rampaging runs down the right-hand side have been dangerous.

His deliveries into the area have also been dangerous, however he is yet to register an assist for Forest.

He did make a mistake in the 1-1 draw against Rotherham United, with his slip resulting in him bringing down Billy Jones, with Daniel Barlaser converting from the penalty spot.

Christie is clearly a key player under Hughton, and the way he and Nicholas Ioannou break into the final-third, bomb forward and create chances has been very useful for the Reds.

If Christie continues to impress, then Forest are likely to activate the option to sign the right-back.
