Nottingham Forest right-back Mohamed Drager has left the club on loan as he joins Swiss side FC Luzern on loan.

Since joining Forest last season from Olympiacos the defender has failed to make a single appearance for the first team.

The closest the 25-year-old came to Championship football was two appearances for the under 23’s and appearing on the bench against West Brom.

Djed Spence has starred for Forest since joining from Middlesbrough, putting anyone else out of favour.

Drager will be able to get the first team football he desires, with FC Luzern sitting bottom of the Swiss Super League.

Upon his departure, the club said: “Nottingham Forest can confirm that Mohamed Dräger has joined Swiss Super League side FC Luzern on loan until the end of the season.

“Dräger joined the Reds from Olympiacos in August and recently made three appearances for Tunisia in their Africa Cup of Nations campaign.

“We wish Mohamed well for the remainder of the season.”

The Tunisian international joins a number of players who left the City Ground this past month, including Jayden Richardson, Tyrese Fornah, Carl Jenkinson, Jordan Wright, Lyle Taylor and Joao Carvalho.

Forest have also brought in a number of other players in order to help them push for a play-off spot this season.

While Spence has nailed down the right-back position, his performances have earned him interest from a number of Premier League clubs. The length of Drager’s loan is undisclosed but he will hope to return and fight for his place with possible future changes to the team.
