Last summer, Aitor Karanka completely overhauled his Nottingham Forest squad after making a host of signings at the City Ground.
The Reds went continental and spent big, splashing a club-record fee of £13.2m on Benfica playmaker Joao Carvalho, and signing Diogo Goncalves on a season-long loan deal.
Another Portuguese player – Gil Dias – arrived on Trentside on a season-long loan deal from Monaco, with the Reds holding the option to make his move a permanent one at the end of the season.
Dias looked to be a really exciting player when he first arrived at the City Ground, and scored a fabulous goal in a pre-season friendly against AFC Bournemouth which got fans licking their lips.
He started the season off as a regular, but after scoring just one goal in 24 appearances for the Reds, his loan spell on Trentside was cut short.
Upon Martin O’Neill’s arrival at the City Ground, the Irishman didn’t waste any time in reshaping his squad, and he cancelled the winger’s loan spell on the 24th of January.
The wide-man immediately signed on loan for Olympiacos – owned by Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis – and scored one goal in nine games for the Greek side in the second half of the campaign.
Since returning to parent club Monaco, the 23-year-old has, perhaps unsurprisingly, been a regular for the French Ligue 1 side, making seven league starts thus far this term.

Monaco have endured a tough start to the season, and sit 11th in the Ligue 1 table. Dias will be hopeful of keeping his place in the side, and help Leonardo Jardim’s side climb up the table.
