Nottingham Forest Keen on Iranian Midfielder Dejagah
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Championship giant Nottingham Forest is reportedly keen to sign Iranian free agent midfielder Ashkan Dejagah.
The 31-year-old winger has been a free agent since his six-month deal at Bundesliga side VFL Wolfsburg expired at the end of last season. But he could be given a chance to kick-start his career in the East Midlands, with Nottingham Forest coach Aitor Karanka open to a deal.
Dejagah spent two years at Fulham between 2012 and 2014 and largely impressed at Craven Cottage with his speed, unpredictability and eye for the spectacular.
The Iranian international was named the fans’ Player of the Season when Fulham were relegated during a calamitous 2013/14 campaign before leaving for Qatari club Al-Arabi.
The former Germany under-21 ace would give Karanka some much-needed depth in the wide positions after Forest lost out to Celtic in bids for both Lewis Morgan and Charly Musonda.
