Nottingham Forest’s move for Atletico Madrid left-back Renan Lodi has hit a snag as the newly-promoted side eye a nineteenth signing of their busy transfer window.

Lodi was considered by Manchester City and others this window but his capture would have been a huge blow for Forest.
Nottingham Forest have been in talks with Atletico Madrid over the loan signing of Renan Lodi – but the move has now hit a snag
He was a key part of Atletico’s squad last season, having made 42 appearances in all competitions.
However, the defender seems to have fallen down manager Diego Simeone’s pecking order this season as he has been an unused sub in both LaLiga games this season.
Meanwhile, Forest signed Hwang Ui-jo from French side Bordeaux and he immediately joined Olympiacos on loan.
They are continuing talks over a £2m deal for Wolves defender Willy Boly and had inquired about Everton’s Michael Keane, but the Goodison club were not ready to loan the 29-year-old out.

Cooper’s side currently sit 10th in the standings, with one win, one draw and one loss in their first three games this season.
They embarked on a blistering window of activity which saw them land nearly 20 players as they seek to score in the Premier League and survive.
Cooper recruited Jesse Lingard, Chiekhou Kouyaté, Neco Williams, Morgan Gibbs-White, Taiwo Awoniyi and Wayne Hennessey.
