Atlético Madrid’s failure to guarantee Renan Lodi regular game time convinced him to join Nottingham Forest on loan towards the end of the summer window.

The left-back has managed eight appearances in all competitions, which includes six league starts this season.

Lodi has been in and out of Steve Cooper’s starting lineup for Nottingham Forest since the start of October.

The La Liga side replaced Lodi with Sergio Reguilón, and the Spaniard joined them on loan from Tottenham Hotspur. Like the Brazil international, the Spurs owned defender has also struggled this term.

Marca state the operations involving Lodi [and Reguilón] have ‘not been profitable’ for the players, Atlético or Nottingham Forest. Three months after their transfers, these two deals have ‘not been a success’.

Regarding the South American, the report says there has been a ‘decline’ in the expected prominence that he seemed to have at Nottingham Forest.

This has resulted in Lodi losing a place in the Brazil squad for the Qatar World Cup. Tite has preferred Juventus’ Alex Sandro and Sevilla’s Alex Telles ahead of him.

To sum it up, Lodi’s transfer to Nottingham Forest has been an ‘unsuccessful move’.
