According to journalist Geoff Peters, Forest have come in with an offer for the shot-stopper this week. Twitter: Nottingham Forest have made a loan bid to take goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic from Leicester until the end of the seaso… (@mrgeoffpeters) Jakupovic has not played a minute of first-team football for Leicester this season, with both Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Ward ahead of him in the pecking order at the King Power.

The 2017–18 season is Nottingham Forest 's 152nd season in existence, 10th consecutive season in the EFL Championship, and their first full season under the ownership of Evangelos Marinakis and Sokratis Kominakis, who had purchased the club from Fawaz Al-Hasawi on the 18 May 2017.

Nottingham Forest were formed in 1865 and have played at their home - the City Ground - on the bank of the River Trent since 1898. Forest were back to back European Cup winners between 1979 and 1980.

Aitor Karanka has left his role as manager of Nottingham Forest after the club agreed to release him from his contract.

Speculation has been building over recent weeks that the Spaniard's days at the City Ground were numbered, amid rumours of a major fall-out with the club's hierarchy.

Karanka was appointed in January last year, having been sacked by Middlesbrough in March 2017 with the club heading for relegation from the Premier League.

His last game in charge of Forest was Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup third-round defeat at Chelsea.

His most recent Championship outing was an impressive 4-2 defeat of leaders Leeds United on New Year's Day, a triumph which ended a five-match winless run and leaves Forest just one place and four points outside the play-offs.

Forest agree to release Karanka Following weeks of speculation, Aitor Karanka has departed Nottingham Forest after the club agreed to release him from his deal.

The former Middlesbrough coach Aitor Karanka has been named the new manager of Nottingham Forest .

Nottingham Forest Football Club, often referred to as simply Forest , is a professional football club based in West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire, England.

"Aitor Karanka has asked to be released from his contract as the manager of Nottingham Forest Football Club," a brief statement on the club's official website read.

"The club have agreed to this request and the terms of departure have been agreed. Both parties wish each other every success for the future. There will be no further comment from either party.

"Simon Ireland will take charge of first-team affairs until a new manager is appointed."

Karanka took in 52 games at the Forest helm.

He only emerged victorious in 16 of those, drawing 19 and losing 17.

That inability to deliver positive results has contributed to his departure, but managerial change has been commonplace at the City Ground in recent times and the Reds are preparing to open another new chapter.
