Jonjo Shelvey was left out of Nottingham Forest’s squad at the start of this season and this convinced him to look for a solution away from the Premier League side.

On September 14th, the Tricky Trees allowed the 31-year-old to complete a loan move to Çaykur Rizespor and the deal didn’t include an option or obligation to buy.

The Nottingham Forest owned player has managed an assist from five league games and his displays seem to have made the Turkish club consider a permanent transfer. That’s according to Hasan Yavuz Bakır, who is a member of Çaykur Rizespor’s board of directors and also their spokesperson.

Bakır made this claim when he appeared as a guest on Radyospor, relayed by Ajanspor, and has admitted that his club could hold talks with Steve Cooper’s side, if they intend to extend the midfielder’s stay.

“Shelvey is a very high quality and experienced player, we think he will contribute to our team,” he said.

“There’s no purchase option in Shelvey’s contract, but if we have such an idea at the end of the season, we will sit down and talk to Nottingham. Adolfo Gaich also does not have any options in his contract. We can evaluate this at the end of the season.”

Nottingham Forest took Shelvey from Newcastle United in January and offered him a deal until 2025. He made eight league appearances for Steve Cooper’s side in the second half of last season.
