The Nottingham Post has reported that defender Danny Fox remains part of Dougie Freedman’s plans for next season.
The paper mentions speculation, linking the full-back with a move to Rotherham United, but it appears Freedman will retain the player ahead of the next campaign.
The 29-year-old is one of the most experienced players in the current Forest setup, but he struggled to feature consistently for the club last season; 25 starts and two substitute appearances in the Championship.
Freedman will be working his socks off looking for ways to improve his squad and to give himself extra options.
Although Forest would have been hoping for more consistency from Fox last season, leading to more starts, they are in a difficult position in terms of replacing him.
Freedman is operating with restrictions over the sort of players that he can bring in, which means a swift replacement for Fox would not be easy to find.
Fox’s challenge is to improve in terms of quality and to make himself difficult to drop for the manager, as Forest chase at least a top six place.
