‘We should move heaven and earth to sign him’ – Reporter urges his club to sign NUFC midfielder

NUFC loanee Aleksandar Mitrovic may be making the headlines, however Jack Colback has clearly made a big impression at Nottingham Forest – with club reporter Barry Cooper suggesting they ‘should move heaven and earth’ to sign him this summer.

The 28-year-old hadn’t kicked a ball all season for NUFC after a rumoured fall out with Rafa Benitez, seeing him eventually find a January escape route via Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Since completing his loan move to the Midlands, Colback’s started every single game for Aitor Karanka’s side – and his performances have clearly impressed those at the City Ground.

Despite being a player the majority of Newcastle fans couldn’t wait to get rid of, Nottingham Post reporter Barry Cooper claimed the club ‘should move heaven and earth’ to sign him during one of his player ratings following a recent impressive performance for Forest:

“Jack Colback –  He wins the ball so many times that you almost don’t notice him. Keeps things remarkably simple and the ball ticking over. Forest should move heaven and earth to keep him beyond the summer”

He’s not the only one who wants Forest to make his loan move a permanent one over the summer too, with their fans having the following to say about his recent displays in the second tier:

Some even worry that he’s been too good to sign for them permanently!

Is he a player whose found his level in the Championship or do you think he could still do a job for NUFC?
