    I feel like he could play at a better club than championship bottom-feeder....he did pretty well in the EPL by all accounts. He should be playing at a first division club somewhere.

    Could? Probably, but his wages may be an issue: when he signed with Forest he was transferring from an EPL club, so his wages would have been quite high and he's been one of their most important and consistent players, which would have kept them fairly high. He's also quite settled in the region, so he may be unwilling to agitate for a move.

    The real factor, however, is that while he's a good player he's never been rated a Championship stand-out in the way that Yedlin has, so he hasn't attracted the "name your price bids" from a player promotion-chaser. He'll go to a better team when his contract is up and he can move on a Bosman, or when Forest get an new and non-insane owner who hires a competent Director of Football who restructures the squad to make Forest a better team.

    I'm not holding my breath on the second option.:(

    I wanna say he's under-rated outside of the club but I feel you're 100% correct

    I doubt a month is going to make or break a move - he has a whole body of work to justify (or not) a "nice move."

    Staying in the Champioship would do for now. . .
