Keeping Joe Lolley

Lolley is an important player for Forest and has been playing well for Aitor Karanka’s side so far this season.

According to WhoScored, the winger has made 19 starts and four substitute appearances in the Championship for the Reds so far this season, scoring six goals and providing six assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

One can understand why Roy Hodgson’s Palace and West Brom (reportedly) want the winger in January, but for Forest to maintain their promotion push in the second half of the season, they need to keep hold of the former Kidderminster Harriers star.

Lolley joined Forest from Huddersfield Town in January 2018 for a transfer fee reported by Sky Bet to be worth £500,000.
