Nottingham Forest forgotten man could end nightmare with January transfer

Blackpool are “looking to re-sign” Nottingham Forest winger Josh Bowler on loan in January, according to a report.

The 23-year-old is having a difficult loan spell at Olympiacos, where he has made just four appearances since joining from Forest on transfer deadline day this summer.


Forest signed Bowler from Blackpool and immediately loaned him to the Greek side, who are also owned by Forest chief Evangelos Marinakis. Things have not gone to plan for the winger, who is stuck in transfer limbo come January. There is one possible option for him, but the door appears to be open

Due to FIFA registration rules, players can register for three clubs per season, but are only able to play for two of those. As Bowler has played for Blackpool and Oympiacos this season, the Seasiders are the only other team Bowler could leave Olympiacos for in January.

According to Football League World, Blackpool are keen on pursuing a move to bring their former winger back to the club on loan from Forest. If such a deal were to happen, it would likely go through quickly with Marinakis making the final decisions on behalf of both Olympiacos and Forest.

Last season, Bowler played 42 games for Blackpool in the Championship, scoring seven goals and setting up another three from out wide. His performances earned rave reviews from supporters and local media, with Forest beating a number of other teams to his signature.
