Nottingham Forest defender Mohamed Drager was granted a loan today, joining Swiss side Luzern until the end of the season.
Forest signed Drager from Olympiacos in August, signing the defender in what appeared to be a special from Evangelos Marinakis.
Drager arrived with international experience with Tunisia having played in Germany with Paderborn and Freiburg.
The 25-year-old mainly plays as a right-back but Forest fans are yet to see Drager in action.
Sadly, Drager never played a single game for Forest and was not picked by Steve Cooper.
Forest then went to sign another right in January when Canadian ace Richie Laryea arrived from Toronto.
It has at least helped to cover Drager’s international commitments with Tunisia, but Drager will not play for Forest at all this season.
Forest have confirmed Drager’s departure as he has joined Swiss side Lucerne until the summer. Luzern currently sits at the bottom of the Swiss top flight.
Luzern are now hoping Drager can help spark a revival, which is badly needed given they have won just once in 19 league games this season.
Luzern sporting director Remo Meyer said that they are “convinced” that Drager can be a quality addition.
Meyer also called Drager “quick and nimble”, believing he can make an immediate impact in Switzerland.
It already looks like a long road for Drager at Forest, but you never know – and an impressive stint with Luzern might just put him in Cooper’s plans.
