Nottingham Forest finally completed the signing of right back Sam Byram this weekend, with the West Ham man arriving on a loan deal at the City Ground.
Since the signing, many Forest fans have questioned whether any sort of permanent deal is in place for the former Leeds man, but manager Aitor Karanka revealed to the Nottingham Post that nothing is in place just yet.
Karanka confirmed that ‘it is just a loan for this season’ before saying he didn’t want to think too far into the future regarding Byram, citing that it was simply important that the ‘player is here’.
Byram will not automatically win his place in the Forest first XI though, with Karanka also admitting that he has been happy with the former of right back Tendayi Dariwka so far.
Forest managed to scrape a 1-0 win against Reading yesterday after finally breaking down a dogged Royals side at the City Ground to register their first three points of the season after two consecutive draws to begin the season with.
A summer of big name and money signings has seen Forest talked about as potential promotion candidates, and the signing of Byram has only enhanced what was already a very talented squad for Karanka to work with.
Forest fans, what do you make of this? Will Byram dislodge Dariwka? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
