Future first-team chances

Appiah is only 17 years of age and is still developing as a footballer, and it could take a while for the teenager to break into the Forest first team.

The youngster, though, could catch the eye of Forest manager Aitor Karanka if he continues to shine for the England Under-18 side and does well for the Reds’ youth team.

Forest are aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship this season and stand a chance of winning promotion to the Premier League.
