Forest are still Keane

- BY TOM HOPKINSON

NOTTINGHAM FOREST are ready to reignite their interest in Everton defender Michael Keane when the transfer window opens in January.

Forest asked about a loan move in the summer but injuries to Ben Godfrey, Yerry Mina and Mason Holgate meant they were rebuffed.

New sporting director Filippo Giraldi watched Keane during Everton’s Carabao Cup clash with Bournemout­h in midweek.

He is ready to go back in for the former Manchester United man, who has struggled for minutes this season following his arrival to Goodison Park with Conor Coady and James Tarkowski last summer.
