Danish newspaper BT have a feature in their Monday edition on Superliga players who could be leaving the country in January.
First up is Frederik Rønnow, Brondby’s 25 year old goalkeeper. Having ‘developed into one of the country’s top goalkeepers’, BT believe Rønnow will not be short of offers in the summer, after clubs tried in the last window.
It’s stated the player said ‘no’ to a move to Nottingham Forest, not being tempted enough to join the Championship club.
Nottingham Forest were linked with many goalkeepers during the summer window, as the club looked to improve their options in the position. Given the wide range of approaches made by the club, Rønnow efforts weren’t too much of a surprise.
But the stopper held Nottingham Forest off, and thought he’d better waiting for something else, and then Crystal Palace came along. BT state a move to Palace ‘ran aground at the last minute’, with the club also linked to a string of goalkeepers.
Roy Hodgson could still look to improve his choices in the position, after the Steve Mandanda transfer failure, and subsequent departure, was never really dealt with.
As for a January move, BT give the Brondy player a reasonable chance of a transfer, although not high, with his club having to balance football ambitions alongside financial needs.
Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest may well look again.
