Nottingham Forest defender Tendayi Darikwa is reportedly on Wigan Athletic’s radar.

According to The Sun on Sunday (print edition, page 65, July 14, 2019). Wigan Athletic are interested in signing Tendayi Darikwa from Nottingham Forest in the summer transfer window.

Wigan manager Paul Cook worked with Darikwa at Chesterfield, and he is reportedly keen on securing the services of the 27-year-old right-back this summer.

It has been reported that the Zimbabwe international is being lined up as a replacement for 19-year-old full-back Reece James, who has returned to his parent club Chelsea after spending the 2018-19 campaign on loan at the Latics.

Nottingham Forest spell

Darikwa has been on the books of Forest since the summer of 2017 when he joined from Burnley.

The right-back made 28 appearances in the Championship for Forest last season, providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.

During the 2017-18 campaign, the Zimbabwe international made 29 starts and one substitute appearance in the league for the Reds, according to WhoScored.
