Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies has admitted he would like to sign an experienced left-back ahead of the new Championship season.
Joel Lynch completed a permanent switch this summer after impressing on loan last season, although he remains Forest's only left-back option with Julian Bennett on the sidelines.
Davies believes the 21-year-old has the potential to become the club's first-choice left-back, but he feels he needs additional experience to compete for the position in the short-term.
"Joel has work to do and we are trying to get two players in every position, everyone knows that," he told the Evening Post.
"And, at the minute, we have one left-back. I will say no more than that.
"We are trying to fit round pegs in round holes still. Lynchy is a young full-back with very good potential but he needs a lot of work, which we will help him complete."
