Nottingham Forest forgotten man seals January transfer

Nottingham Forest defender Loic Mbe Soh has left the club on a loan deal for the second half of the season.

The Franco-Cameroonian has linked up with French side Guingamp, who play in Ligue 2, until the end of the current campaign before returning to the City Ground in the summer. Reports linking him with a move to the Brittany outfit first emerged in early December.

Mbe Soh has barely had a sniff of first-team action this season, featuring mainly for the U23s' side instead and will get much need playing time with the Red and Blacks.

Guingamp confirmed the loan signing on Twitter on Monday afternoon. They were keen to get a deal done after their starting centre-back, Pierre Lemonnier, ruptured a cruciate ligament in one of his knees.

The 21-year-old joined Forest from Paris Saint-Germain in September 2020 for an undisclosed transfer fee and made his debut later that month. But he has struggled for game time in his two years at the club.

The former French youth international has made just 11 appearances in all competitions since his move from PSG. He has made just three senior appearances this season, all of which have come in the EFL Cup and FA Cup.
