Janko arrives on loan

31 August 2018

Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Swiss defender Saidy Janko on a season-long loan from FC Porto.

The 22-year-old progressed through the ranks at FC Zurich before he was signed by Manchester United on transfer deadline day in the summer of 2013.

Game time was limited for the Swiss Under-21 international at Old Trafford so he made a loan move to Bolton Wanderers in February 2015 before he signed permanently for Celtic that summer.

Having made 20 appearances at Celtic Park, including four in the UEFA Champions League, Janko enjoyed further loan spells at Barnsley and St Etienne before he signed for FC Porto in June. 

Primarily a right-back, Janko is also equally adept at playing as a right-winger and he now joins up with Aitor Karanka’s squad for the rest of the 2018-19 season.
