Panagiotis Tachtsidis joined Nottingham Forest on a free in September but he failed to make a Championship appearance before moving to Lecce in Italy.

Nottingham Forest’s forgotten man Panagiotis Tachtsidis is expected to leave the City Ground on a permanent basis this summer, according to the Nottingham Post.

The former Roma and Genoa midfielder made a surprise switch to Forest in September, joining on a two-year deal after being released by Olympiakos.

But Tachtsidis failed to make any sort of an impression in the Championship, featuring in just one matchday squad without playing a single minute of football for the two-time European Cup winners.

And it was hardly a surprise when the 28-year-old left on loan in January, joining Italian outfit Lecce until the end of the season.

Tachtsidis has had a new lease of life in Serie B, however, providing three assists in 16 league games for a Lecce side who are level on points with Brescia at the top of the table.

And, according to the Post, Lecce are expected to take up an option to sign the Greek international on a permanent basis in the summer. This means he will likely bid farewell to Nottingham Forest without ever playing a single game for the club.
