Halmstads chief says they'll take back Nottingham Forest newbie Tim Erlandsson when he 'gets homesick'

The goalkeeper has just signed a three-year deal at the City Ground.

Yesterday Nottingham Forest reported that they had signed Swedish goalkeeper Tim Erlandsson on a three-year deal after he spent last season on loan at the club from Halmstads BK. He played for the club's under-18s throughout last season, helping them to the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup.

The stopper's signature comes at a time when Forest are short on stoppers, Karl Darlow finally heading to Newcastle United. That leaves just Dorus De Vries and Dimitar Evtimov as first-team custodians at Forest.

However, despite only just signing a permanent deal with Forest, Halmstads are already looking at getting the player.

Halmstads chief executive Fredrik Andersson has said that if the teen is ever homesick, he is more than welcome back at Orjans Vall. He is quoted by Tribal Football as stating:

"It's always fun to have trained players who are now on the international market.

"We are sorry that we've lost a good goalkeeper, but we have had a good dialogue with Tim and the day he gets homesick we would love to have him back."

Of course Forest fans will be hoping that is not the case. The teen has only just arrived at the City Ground and they will be hoping to see him go on and become a regular member of the first-team in the not so distant future.
