Nottingham Forest are showing an interest in Middlesbrough midfielder Adlene Guedioura, as per a report by the Nottingham Post.

The Algeria international played for Nottingham Forest in 2012 and was a hit at the Reds. They are keen to bring him back now as Aitor Karanka looks to sign a player or two before the transfer deadline on Wednesday.

The 32 year-old has fallen out of favour at Middlesbrough this season and their new boss Tony Pulis has been keen to offload him in this month. Karanka was the man who signed Guedioura for Boro last January and could be set to now bring him to Forest.

He is a vastly experienced midfielder and has played in England for a number of years now. He is known for his battling performances and a decent long shot. He has played for 12 clubs so far in his career.

After starting his career at Racing Paris, he went onto have spells at Sedan, Olympique Noisy-le-Sec, L’Entente, Kortrijk and Charleroi before being brought to England in 2010 by Wolves. After two years playing for Wolves, he left them to join Nottingham Forest in 2012.

He impressed in his only season at the City Ground and was snapped up by Crystal Palace, before spells at Watford and now Middlesbrough. With his career at Boro turning sour, a move to Nottingham Forest would be a good opportunity for him to get playing regular football again.

Guedioura is an experienced midfielder who would be a shrewd signing by Forest and Aitor Karanka.
