LICHAJ JOINS FOREST
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Wednesday, June 19, 2013
After signing with Aston Villa in 2007, Eric Lichaj has found a new club after signing a two year deal with Notthingham Forest of the English Championship.

Lichaj, 24, struggled to earn consistent playing time last year with Aston Villa and finishes his time at the club with 32 league appearances.

"Eric has just completed his new two year deal with Notthingham Forest," a club spokesman told YA on Wednesday.

It will not be Lichaj's first experience in the Championship. From 2009 through 2011, the Illinois native went on a series of loans, one of which was to Leeds United.

This season, Forest will be aiming for promotion to the English Premier League after narrowly missing out on the promotional playoffs last year. In the 2012/13 season it finished with 67 points, just one point behind sixth place Leicester City for the final promotional playoff spot.

Maybe his top priority is to play consistently and improve and not to play in 14 cup

I may not be fully up on Lichaj's situation, but isn't this a major downer? Seems like he was fighting for minutes last year-dropping to the Championship is admitting defeat, no? And this will make it extremely tough for him to get on the short-list of fullback candidates for 2014?

What's the deal here?
