Nottingham Forest have signed their second player from Bundesliga outfit Hamburg of the summer, in the form of Robert Tesche. The 5 foot 11 versatile midfielder joins the reds on a free transfer signing a one year deal to help add some more depth to Stuart Pearce’s side.
Both Eric Lichaj and Jack Hunt had been deployed in a holding midfield role for Forest in recent games so the signing of Tesche will hope to ease the strain for the Reds. It is unlikely that the 27 year olds signing is an indication that Henri Lansbury is close to completing his much rumoured move to Premier League outfit Burnley, with Forest reportedly reading to spend again on a more suitable replacement should that move go through.
Tesche has made 56 appearances for Hamburg since 2009 whilst also spending 6 months on loan at Fortuna Dusseldorf, making 14 league appearances. He has a reputation of being a hardworking box to box midfielder who maybe lacks in his on ball ability, but Forest fans will be eager to see what he offers for themselves and he could make his debut vs Bolton this Saturday.
