What is Jack Hobbs up to these days after his Nottingham Forest exit?



Jack Hobbs was an often reliable figure for Nottingham Forest during his time at the City Ground.

The centre-half joined Forest from Hull City in 2013, initially on loan for the season before turning into a permanent deal the year after.

Hobbs was to make 29 appearances for the Reds in his first season at the City Ground, with his only goal coming in a 1-0 home victory over arch rivals Derby County.

He was recalled by Hull in January, though, but Forest went and signed him permanently for around £1million on a four-and-a-half year deal.

Injuries then began to ruin Hobbs’ time at the City Ground. He fractured his ankle in March, and suffered a hamstring injury limiting him to 19 appearances in 2014/15.

After a five-year spell on Trentside, Hobbs departed the club at the end of the 2017/18 campaign, racking up 86 first-team appearances for the Reds.

So what is he up to nowadays?

Well, after his spell at Forest, Hobbs joined Bolton on a free transfer, making 39 appearances for the club as they dropped down to League Two.

He was let go at the end of last season, along with 13 other players as the Trotters began to reshape their squad under Ian Evatt.

Hobbs is yet to find a new club, and at the age of 32, it remains to be seen whether someone takes a chance on him given his previous injury problems.

After struggling with his back towards the latter stages of his time at Bolton, he may look to hang his boots up in the near future.
