The Wolverhampton Wanderers forward is failing to pull up trees at the City Ground for Sabri Lamouchi's side.

Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Rafa Mir is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest from Molineux but so far he is failing to pull up trees at the City Ground and his performance on his first Championship start for the Reds was widely panned by many fans.

The 22-year-old forward joined Wolves from Valencia in January 2018 but featured just four times for the Premier League club, although things went a little better at international level as he helped Spain win the European Under-21 Championship in the summer.

 

Now at Forest, Mir has flattered to deceive so far, with just two assists to his name in all competitions this season, and in Saturday's Championship trip to Wigan, he spurned several great opportunities - an effort into the side netting, a header from a Joe Lolley ball when he could have just glanced it across goal, and a miss from John Bostock's good delivery.

Needless to say, the Spaniard's efforts on the day did not yield a very positive reaction from the Forest faithful to say the least as their 10-game unbeaten run came to an end:

According to the Birmingham Mail, Mir’s latest loan move away from Wolves includes an option in Forest’s favour to make the deal permanent at the end of it, but unless he can put his latest performance behind him and improve quickly, there may not be much of a future for him at the City Ground - or indeed at Molineux.
