With the January transfer window now over a week old, Nottingham Forest striker Rafa Mir continues to be linked with a move away from the City Ground.
According to a recent report from Spanish newspaper AS, Spanish second-division side Huesca are waiting to sign the 22-year-old and have made him one of their top transfer targets.
Mir joined Forest on a season-long loan from Wolves in the summer, but has really struggled to make an impact, failing to score in 13 appearances for the Reds.
The Spanish centre-forward has failed to impress head coach Sabri Lamouchi and his impact has been so underwhelming that he hasn’t featured for the club since the beginning of December.
His future at the City Ground remains uncertain, with Lamocuhi admitting recently the striker will ‘probably’ return to his parent club this month.
It now appears as though he could be set to return to his homeland, as this latest report states that Huesca are ‘still waiting’ to sign him.

Things just haven’t worked out for Mir since he made the move to Nottingham Forest. His performances for the Reds have been very disappointing and it seems almost inevitable that he will leave the club this window.
Forest are hoping to challenge for promotion this season and it’s obvious that Mir isn’t good enough to provide backup for Lewis Grabban, so him leaving the club would probably be a sensible decision.
He isn’t going to get a chance in the first team at Wolves, but maybe he can get his career back on track in Spain. He’s scored goals in his homeland in the past, so maybe Huesca would be a good move for him.
