Nottingham Forest have completed a deal to sign versatile Burnley defender Tendayi Darikwa on a four-year contract.
Delighted to sign for @NFFC can't wait to get started. Thanks for the welcoming messages — Tendayi Darikwa (@TendayiDarikwa) 26 July 2017
The defender went on to make 24 appearances in his debut season at Turf Moor, but following Burnley's promotion to the Premier League, struggled to hold down a regular place and played only five games during the 2016/2017 season, each coming in cup competitions.
Darikwa is known for his versatility, able to play both right full-back in a more advanced midfield position. The defender's lack of playing time, coupled with Burnley's signing of Phil Bardsley appears to make the transfer a positive one for all parties involved, with Forest hoping that Darikwa can live up to his early potential.
