Nottingham Forest man subject of enquiry from fellow Championship outfit



Nottingham Forest defender Tendayi Darikwa is wanted by fellow Championship side Wigan Athletic.

The full-back, who has been impressive for Forest in the last 12 months, has been the subject of an enquiry from Paul Cook’s team as they look to strengthen the ranks ahead of the upcoming Championship campaign.

According to Alan Nixon, the Latics have asked Forest about his availability of Darikwa, although Forest have failed to accept any bid of sorts from Wigan as yet.

Darikwa has been a regular for the Reds despite a plethora of managers in the last few seasons threatening to disprupt the club’s progress in the Championship.

The 27-year-old has made in excess of 50 appearances for the Midlands outfit since making the move from Burnley back in 2017, and a move away from Forest at this stage would no doubt be a disappointment for Darikwa given the appointment of new manager Sabri Lamouchi.

Forest are keen on keeping much of their squad intact despite Lamouchi telling the likes of Liam Bridcutt and Daryl Murphy they can leave, so it will be interesting to see what their stance is regarding Darikwa’s situation at the City Ground.

The Verdict

It’s hard to see Forest selling Darikwa in all honesty, he seems to be good a member of the squad to let go.

However, with a new manager in charge and a manager who obviously isn’t averse to making big decisions, it wouldn’t be the biggest surprise in the world either.

The defender is a solid member of the Reds’ squad, so if he is sold, then a replacement is likely to be needed.
