Nottingham Forest miss out on Hutton capture, fans react

Nottingham Forest boss Aitor Karanka is attempting to shape a team that can challenge for Premier League promotion this season.

Numerous transfer targets have entered the fray, and one of those was Aston Villa’s Alan Hutton, who was due to become a free agent next month.

For months it seemed that the defender’s time at Villa Park was coming to an end, which appeared to have alerted Forest.

The Nottingham Post reported on Tuesday that the Reds had offered Hutton a two-year contract, and all indications were that a deal could go through.

However, in a big twist on Thursday, Villa announced via their official website that the full-back has signed a one-year contract extension.

This means that Forest are back to square one, but the blow was softened by the news that Portuguese pair Joao Carvalho and Diogo Goncalves have put pen to paper.

Some fans, though, were left frustrated by the failed Hutton pursuit, while others feel that it is no great loss.
