Nottingham Forest has again had a very busy summer in the transfer market, with several senior players leaving the City Ground.
One of them was Yuri Ribeiro, who left when his contract expired. In some ways, it was a surprise to see the left-back go, as he had generally done well in the 25 games he played in the previous campaign.
But, with plenty of options at the back, the decision was made to let the Portuguese defender go, with Ribeiro eventually signing a deal with Polish giants Legia Warsaw.
Having missed much of the preseason before joining the capital club at the end of August, it is perhaps not surprising to see that Ribeiro has yet to establish himself as a regular.
His only league start came in a defeat at Slask Wroclaw, with the left foot monitoring crucial games against Slavia Prague and Spartak Moscow in the Champions League, as he is on the bench for their League clash. Europa against Leicester City tonight.
24 questions about some of the best forwards in Nottingham Forest – can you get it 100% correct?
After around a month of training with his new teammates, Ribeiro will level up and he hopes to make an impact as the season progresses and his fitness strengthens.
Legia has had a scorching start to the league season, sitting just above the relegation zone. But, they’re only nine points off the top and they’ll expect to move up the standings over the next few months as they look to hold onto their crown.
It remains to be seen what role Ribeiro will play, but after a slow start he will be desperate to show his worth in Poland.
