Championship sides keen as Nottingham Forest slap £4m price tag on fringe man

Nottingham Forest have placed a £4m price tag on Joe Worrall with Championship clubs keen, according to reporter Alan Nixon.

Nottingham Forest centre-back Worrall has spent the vast majority of his career playing in the Championship with 168 second-tier appearances to his name.

The 27-year-old has played 37 times in the Premier League since their rise to the top-flight but he’s currently out on loan with Turkish giants Besiktas having fallen down the pecking order at the City Ground.

Now, as the summer transfer window nearing, Worrall is on the radars of Championship clubs.

Writing on his Patreon, reporter Alan Nixon has said that second-tier sides are keen on the centre-back and Nottingham Forest are looking to raise £4m. Relegated Sheffield United are one of those interested but a decision is yet to be made on a potential move to loan club Besiktas with a fixed fee already agreed.

Worrall has played eight times for the Turkish club, scoring once. He’s been an unused substitute in the last two games.

Who is this?

Back to the Championship?

Worrall has been a valuable figure at Nottingham Forest for some time now, coming through the youth ranks and becoming club captain. He played a key role in their rise to the Premier League while also spending time out on loan with the likes of Rangers.

While in the Championship, he was among the division’s standout defenders and his step up to the top-flight was one many felt was deserved.

However, with game time becoming more limited this season and a £4m price tag set, Worrall looks set to be within the reaches of some of the Championship’s more flush sides.

Sheffield United are among those keen, but time will tell just who else has him on the radar.

A smart signing?

A player of such pedigree and Championship experience could prove a great addition to a side with ambitions of fighting for promotion and at £4m, Worrall may end up bring a bit of a snip.

He’s got a promotion to his name and should he drop back down to the second-tier, many would fancy him to notch another.

It remains to be seen just where he ends up but at £4m, those in the upper echelons of the division will be more likely to part ways with a fairly sizeable fee for just one player.
