Cooper has found an 8 million replacement for a Nottingham Forest man who wants to leave

Cooper has found an 8 million replacement for a Nottingham Forest man who wants to leave ...

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Nikolas Ioannou is on his way out of Nottingham Forest. Both Omar Richards and Harry Toffolo have been signed by the Premier League newcomers.

Is there a footballer with a more glitzy CV than Cesc Fabregas? From Barcelona to London, Monaco to Como, it's a globe-trotters dream.

Fabregas landed a surprise move to the second tier of Italian football earlier this month. Ioannou appears to be able to name the World Cup winner a team-mate next season.

After successfully luring Fabregas to Serie B with the promise of some of Italy's most enticing views, Como have turned their attention to the Nottingham Forest misfit, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

Ioannou, a Cyprus international, spent the previous season on loan at the Stadio Giuseppe Sinigaglia. He is expected to return in the coming days, this time on a permanent basis, according to the report. Ioannou has his sights set on a long-term stay at a club that appointed one Dennis Wise as their sports operations director a couple of years ago.

Ioannou, a former Manchester United youth footballer, has played just five league games since joining Forest from APOEL Nicosia back in 2020. After fellow left-backs Omar Richards and Harry Toffolo joined from Bayern Munich and Huddersfield Town, he will have dropped even further down the Steve Coopers pecking order.

Neco Williams, a fellow newbie, can also play on the left. According to The Athletic, discussions with Real Betis are also underway regarding the 16 million-rated Alex Moreno.

The chances of Ioannou receiving a fresh start on the City Ground are slim. A separation of the ways seems to be the most appropriate course of action.

Ioannou posted on Instagram that a wonderful journey had come to an end following his loan spell in Como.

We went through a lot of downs and ups, but at the end we have achieved what we wanted! I want to thank the board for the opportunity that was given to me to play for this amazing club; all the coaching staff who believed in me and my teammates, who we met amazing people.

I want to extend my thanks to our fans for their continued support and encouragement throughout the season. I wish the club the best of luck and I will always be a fan of Como 1907.
