Nottingham Forest Defender Seeks Permanent Move to Besiktas

Joe Worrall, the defender on loan at Beşiktaş from Nottingham Forest, has expressed a surprising desire to stay with the Turkish club despite a challenging loan spell according to Aksam.

Limited Opportunities Fail to Deter Worrall:

Worrall joined Beşiktaş in the January transfer window but struggled to secure regular playing time. He faced stiff competition from Necip Uysal and ultimately found himself on the bench for most of his loan stint.

Worrall Expresses Desire to Stay:

Despite these limited opportunities, Worrall has informed Beşiktaş management of his strong interest in remaining with the club for the upcoming season.

This unexpected decision highlights his potential belief in Beşiktaş’ future and a possible change in his playing prospects.

Unproductive Loan Spell:

Worrall’s has only featured in 4 matches and has been unable to register any goals or assists however, he has started the last two league games for the Black Eagles.

Future Uncertain:

Whether Beşiktaş will pursue a permanent deal for Worrall remains unclear. Nottingham Forest will ultimately have the final say on his future. However, Worrall’s desire to stay suggests a potential opportunity for both clubs to reach an agreement.

The Black Eagles want to rebuild over the summer after a disappointing season and Worrall seems keen to be part of the new project at the Super Lig giants.

As things stand the defender is set to return to Forest this summer where he is under contract until 2026.
