Nottingham Forest take Greek goalkeeper Markos Vellidis on trial

2nd March 2017, 16:12

Nottingham Forest have handed a trial to Greek goalkeeper Markos Vellidis.

The 29-year-old began his career with Panathinaikos and is a free agent after leaving Greek Super League side PAOK Salonika at the end of January.

Forest have experienced injury problems with their keepers in recent weeks, having lost Stephen Henderson for the rest of the season with an Achilles problem, while Vladimir Stojkovic currently has a shoulder issue.

Jordan Smith has been between the posts for the last two Sky Bet Championship matches with fellow rookie Dimitar Evtimov providing back-up on the bench.

"We're looking at a goalkeeper this week, just to cover ourselves really, with the situation we have with Jordan, Vlad and Dimi," said Forest boss Gary Brazil at his press conference ahead of Saturday's home game against Brighton.

"We've had a look at a goalkeeper that's out of contract from Greece this week.

"We will continue to scour the market and look at more players who will give us cover and make us stronger as we go through to the end of the season."
