Nottingham Forest set to retain vital cog amid West Ham links



West Ham have been keen on Joe Worrall for some time now and it looked as though their interest would pick up again during this summer window ahead of a potential deal – but a fresh report from The Mirror suggests that the player will instead be staying at the City Ground.

The 25-year-old has spent the last three seasons with Nottingham Forest and has continued to shine as part of their backline. He’s become more and more of a prominent figure for the club and is a focal point in their backline.

He’s now played a key part too as the side have been promoted back into the Premier League after a long exile. With 39 Championship appearances, he has been a first-team regular and Steve Cooper will not want to let go of the player as he looks to keep the spine of his unit together heading into the top flight.

What year were Forest founded?

The good news for the Forest boss – and their supporters – is that it appears Worrall might be staying at the club now too. According to The Mirror, he looks likely to stay on at the City Ground, even with interest in his services from elsewhere. West Ham could even offer the player the chance to feature in Europe but it appears as though he will not be tempted into a move somewhere else.

Instead, he looks likely to stay faithful to the side that he helped promote – and he can now kick on and try his luck with the side in the Premier League.

The Verdict

Joe Worrall has been at the top of his game in the Championship and has emerged as one of the best defenders in the entire division.

Having now led Forest into the Premier League, his stock might never be higher. The interest in him certainly still seems to be there and it is with good reason – he has been a solid presence at the back for Forest and has been a real leader in their promotion push this campaign to boot.

Steve Cooper then will be boosted by the news that he could be staying on at the City Ground. Worrall is a really important player to their side and if he was to depart, then it would leave a big hole in their backline. Him turning down the chance to head elsewhere then is great news for supporters of the club.

If he and the rest of the club’s spine stay on, then it could give them a real chance of staying in the top flight for a prolonged period now, rather than having to drop back down to the Championship.
