Nottingham Forest centre-back Loïc Mbe Soh agrees six-month Guingamp loan

Nottingham Forest center-back Loïc Mbe Soh (21) has agreed to join Ligue 2 side Guingamp on a six-month loan with no option to buy, according to a report from Le Télégramme. The Brittany outfit, a struggling thirteenth-placed Ligue 2 side, have been negotiating in recent weeks with the Premier League side regarding the 21-year-old defender. The Paris Saint-Germain youth product left Les Parisiens for the then-Championship side in 2020, but Forest’s latest spending spree, which followed their Premier League promotion, left Mbe Soh out of Steve Cooper’s plans. 

The Franco-Cameroonian has played only three games with Forest this season, including in a convincing a 3-0 win against Grimsby Town in the second round of the Carabao Cup. In search of game time, Mbe Soh may have found a way out of Nottingham thanks to Guingamp. The Brittany outfit were in need of defensive reinforcements following center-backs Pierre Lemonnier’s ACL tear and Donatien Gomis’ ankle injury. Mbe Soh is expected to feature for Guingamp’s next Ligue 2 game next Saturday at Rodez.
