'Not the one I wanted': Nottingham Forest fans wish they'd signed Dani Pinillos instead of Juan Fuentes

The Barnsley left-back was released by Nottingham Forest last summer.

Nottingham Forest fans are reacting on Twitter to Thursday's signing of Juan Fuentes.

The Spanish left-back arrived at the City Ground alongside Greek goalkeeper Stefanos Kapino, and fills the void left by Armand Traore's departure to Cardiff City.

His position has been something of a weak link for Forest since Dani Pinillos's exit at the end of last season, and several Reds fans are unsure whether Fuentes is an upgrade on his fellow countryman - and former Cordoba player.

Pinillos - who is back in English football with Nottingham Forest's Championship rivals Barnsley after a short-lived return to Cordoba - spent two seasons at the City Ground, but only made 35 appearances due to injury.

The 25-year-old - who has considerably less top flight experience than Fuentes, who had spells with Espanyol and Osasuna - scored his only goal for the Reds in last season's derby draw against Derby County.

Is Fuentes a good signing for Nottingham Forest?
