The January window has not long closed, but the next round of key transfer decisions will soon be just around the corner for Nottingham Forest.

Much of what happens in the summer will depend on which division the Reds find themselves in as they battle to maintain their Premier League status. They are currently six points above the relegation zone with 16 games to play.

Whatever happens between now and May, there are sure to be changes to the City Ground by the end of the season, although it’s unlikely to be as busy as it was last summer. With that in mind, we take a look at some of the big calls Forest will have to make soon.

contract decisions

Several players will see their offers expire in a few months. The club must decide whether to submit new terms or let those players leave.

Given that they haven’t been part of the 25-man Premier League squad in either the first or second half of the season, Lyle Taylor and Cafu are likely to leave. Likewise, Jordan Smith, who went on loan to Huddersfield Town in January and no doubt hopes there’s an opportunity there.

Head coach Steve Cooper has been very coy about the future of Jack Colback and Jesse Lingard, in particular, saying any discussion is on the back burner at the moment. However, he has praised the roles the two continue to play this season.
