New Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Adam Federici could be facing a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury whilst on international duty with Australia according to the Nottingham Post.

The 32-year-old Nowra born stopper joined The Reds on Transfer Deadline Day on a loan deal from English Premier League club AFC Bournemouth which will initially last until January.

Federici is yet to make his debut for Forest however the player could be out of action for the next few weeks after picking up an injury whilst on international duty. The nature of the injury is not yet known and the keeper will be assessed by The Reds’ medical staff upon his return to the club.

The Australian stopper has had some bad luck with injuries of late with Federici having missed four months of action last season with a knee injury. The player has not made a competitive first team appearance since the first week of January when he played for parent club AFC Bournemouth in a shock 3-0 FA Cup Third Round defeat to Millwall at The New Den.

Federici has moved to The City Ground with the hope of getting some game time and another injury problem is the last thing which the player needs after making just five first team outings for The Cherries last term.
