West Ham tipped to join Worrall transfer race as boss faces dilemma

Joe Worrall’s list of suitors now reportedly includes West Ham.

The 24-year-old centre-back has previously been linked with long-time admirers Burnley and also Norwich City, who will be back in the top flight next season after winning the Championship title.

Now West Ham have been “making calls” about Worrall, according to The Sun’s Alan Nixon.

Worrall is under contract at the City Ground until 2024, although Forest look likely to face a battle to keep hold of him come the end of the season.

The player only recently addressed the speculation surrounding his future, ahead of Saturday’s goalless draw with Sheffield Wednesday.

He told NottinghamshireLive: “It’s the same with any player under the age of 24! It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got two left feet or whatever, you’re always getting linked with whoever.

“That’s just the way football is, and it won’t change.

“The media push the stories. Some of them are true, some of them aren’t.

“It’s up to Forest and, at the end of the day, if interest does come in, to make decisions.”

Chris Hughton’s left-back dilemma

Sarah Clapson considered the talking points following Forest’s 0-0 draw at Sheffield Wednesday, including one position in particular.

She said: “It is the one area of the back line which seems to have posed a bit of a conundrum; the one spot Hughton has regularly tinkered with. The aim will surely be to make that a settled position next term.

“Who will be first-choice, however, is another matter.

“Among the options currently on the books, Tyler Blackett looks to have the edge, given he’d been a starter in recent weeks, prior to getting injured.

“Yuri Ribeiro came into the XI against Stoke City and kept his place in the team for the trip to Wednesday, but it would be wrong to read anything into that. It doesn’t necessarily mean he’s likely to put pen to paper again when his contract expires in the summer…”
