Nottingham Forest fans react to Yohan Benalouane signing

Nottingham Forest fans have taken to Twitter to react after the club signed Leicester defender Yohan Benalouane in an attempt to ease their injury crisis in defence.

The Championship play-off chasers have been dealt a significant blow at the back, having lost Danny Fox to suspension, along with all of Michael Dawson, Michael Hefele and Tobias Figueiredo to injury.

Newly-appointed boss Martin O’Neill has been unsuccessful in his attempts to recall Joe Worrall from his loan spell with Rangers, having missed the deadline for such an action – Forest could only cancel the 22-year-old’s loan before January 7th.

As a result, the former Aston Villa manager has signed the Tunisian international Benalouane, who helped the Foxes win the Premier League and reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

The 31-year-old has signed an 18-month contract with the club, and Forest fans are happy that their defensive crisis has been somewhat eased…
