According to SDNA, Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Stefanos Kapino may return to the Superleague Greece this summer. Whilst he is under contract at the City Ground, Aitor Karanka is likely to be happy for him to move on.
The 24-year-old ended last season enjoying a run of games with Forest, with Kapino starting all of their final four matches. He kept two clean sheets in that period. He started the campaign with Greek powerhouses Olympiakos, where he played six times, adding to the 20+ matches he has played in total for that club. He may soon return to Greece, and hopefully challenge for a spot in the Greek national team again.
Atromitos are said to be one side interested in snapping the player up. They finished in 4th position last season, which granted them qualification into the UEFA Europa League in the second qualifying round stage. The prospect of European football may be an attractive proposition for Kapino, who has also played for Panathinaikos and then had a brief spell in German football in Mainz.
A bid of 150,000 euros could soon be received by the Sky Bet Championship club. Should that be the case, Karanka would surely be happy for this move to be granted. Kapino is unlikely to be first choice at the club next season, despite his 50% clean sheet ratio so far. Costal Pantilimon could potentially join on a permanent deal from Premier League side Watford, having moved to the two-time European Cup winners in the previous January transfer window; making a more than positive impression.
