Nottingham Forest have confirmed the season-long loan signing of Max Lowe from Sheffield United.
As Football League World exclusively reported on Monday, the Reds set their sights on signing Lowe in a bid to solve their woes at left-back.
The club have bid farewell to the likes of Yuri Ribeiro, Nicholas Ioannou and Tyler Blackett this summer, and Arsenal loanee Jordi Osei-Tutu, who had to fill in there, is out for several weeks with a hamstring injury.
After chasing Lowe for a while, Forest have now confirmed the season-long loan signing of the 24-year-old.

Lowe joined the Blades from Derby County last summer in a £15million double deal including Jayden Bogle.
The left-back featured only eight times in the Premier League last season, but is yet to feature under new boss Slavisa Jokanovic after they were relegated to the Championship.
Coincidentally, his first game for Forest could come against Derby in what is shaping up to be a huge East Midlands derby clash on Saturday afternoon.
This is undoubtedly a much-needed signing for Forest and one they had to make.
The left-back situation has been a huge dilemma for the Reds, and it’s baffling that they let so many players leave before now without bringing in a replacement.
Lowe is a tall, athletic left-back who is good at going forward and looks steady defensively, and he will be eager to prove a point having fallen out of favour at Bramall Lane.
It’s a move which suits both parties.
