“We’ll sit down and talk” – Director drops big hint over buying Nottingham Forest player

Jonjo Shelvey was kept out of Nottingham Forest’s team at the start of this season, which led him to hunt for a solution elsewhere.

The Tricky Trees permitted the 31-year-old to complete a loan move to aykur Rizespor on September 14th, with no option or obligation to buy.


The Nottingham Forest-owned player has one assist in five league games, and his performances appear to have prompted the Turkish club to contemplate a permanent deal. According to Hasan Yavuz Bakr, a member of aykur Rizespor’s board of directors and the club’s spokesperson.

Bakr made this remark during an appearance on Radyospor, which was relayed by Ajanspor, and has revealed that his club could start negotiations with Steve Cooper’s side if they want to extend the midfielder’s stay.

“Shelvey is a very high quality and experienced player, we think he will contribute to our team,” he added.

“There is no buyout clause in Shelvey’s contract, but if we have such an idea at the end of the season, we will sit down and discuss it with Nottingham.” Adolfo Gaich’s contract likewise does not include any options. We’ll be able to evaluate this at the end of the season.”

Nottingham Forest signed Shelvey from Newcastle United in January and granted him a contract extension until 2025. In the second part of the season, he made eight league appearances for Steve Cooper’s side.
