City defender Daniel Ayala joins Championship side on season-long loan

DEFENDER Dani Ayala has joined npower Championship side Nottingham Forest on loan until the end of the season.

Ayala joined the Canaries from Liverpool last summer and made 10 appearances in total, enjoying his best spell at the heart of the defence during City’s unbeaten run in January. 

The 21-year old defender has also featured heavily in City’s pre-season schedule so far following his return from injury, playing in City’s first three friendlies against Hertha Berlin, Celtic and Peterborough United.

Ayala has previously had loan spells at Hull City and Derby County - finishing the 2010-11 campaign strongly with the Rams, starting 16 consecutive Championship games during the 2010-11 season. He was part of the Rams' team that played against Norwich in City's famous last gasp 3-2 win in April 2011.
