Freedman explains cautious approach to transfers at Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest 2

Nottingham Forest boss Dougie Freedman has explained his approach to signing more players before the end of the transfer window.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman told Forest Player why he’s taking an overly cautious approach to improving his side ahead of the rest of the transfer window.

Freedman has already snapped up some positive signings already this summer, with plenty of time left before the transfer deadline, which would prevent any new faces from arriving until the winter.

Freedman has a very clear mentality with regards to the best approach to transfers, which is based on acting with the best interests of the club at heart moving forward.

“When you’re working under the restrictions we’re working under, you’ve got to make sure everything is set in stone because I don’t want us to be under an embargo for any longer than we need to be,” he told Forest Player.

Youngsters a blessing

The younger players at the football club take a little bit of pressure away from the manager in the respect that they provide him with new and different options, having a similar impact to new signings coming in.

There is evidence in the first team, in the form of Tyler Walker and Ben Osborn among others, of what can be achieved for any youngster willing to work hard enough to get a chance to impress.

It’s a case of tweaking and the manager adding a little bit of quality into the equation because in terms of the way the club are developing players, there’s not too much wrong with Forest’s philosophy at the moment.

Hopefully the manager will be backed over some new faces and hopefully it will pay off by the end of the season.
