Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to Djamel Abdoun's plea for another chance

The Algerian wants to remain with the club, who he has not played for since March 2014.

Many a Nottingham Forest fan would be forgiven for completely forgetting that Djamel Abdoun actually still plays for the club.

He has not played for Forest since March 2014, not featuring in a single game this season.

The 29-year-old Algerian international has spent part of this season on loan in Belgium with Lokeren and is now set for a permanent exit from the City Ground in the summer. The country he is reportedly destined to end up in is one where he has certainly experienced previous success.

Last week it was reported by L'Expressiondz that Abdoun is a target for Greek sides AEK Athens and PAOK Salonika.

Abdoun has previously enjoyed successful stints in Greece with Kavala and Olympiakos, so a return to the country would seemingly be welcomed by the player.

However, he has intimated to the Nottingham Post today that he would like to persevere at Forest and hopefully carve out a place for himself in Dougie Freedman's side.

He has one year left on his current deal and considering Forest don't have many options in terms of signing players, thanks to their transfer embargo, maybe it is wise to give him a go this summer.

But considering it was high wages like his that got Forest in this mess, many others are less sympathetic.

But what did Forest fans think?

Reaction was, as expected, mixed:
