The 27-year-old who started his senior career with French side Caen joined Spanish outfit Granada in 2014 and was immediately loaned to the Friulian White-Blacks.
After his spell with Leicester, he was handed a permanent deal by the Italian outfit before he teamed up on loan with Watford in the summer of 2017 where he made six league appearances, scoring once.
This season he has been restricted to three games with the Dacia Arena outfit and, on Thursday, completed a temporary move to Forest.
“Nottingham Forest are delighted to announce the signing of Molla Wague on loan,” read a statement on
“The central defender arrives from Italian side Udinese and has experience of playing in the Premier League and Serie A and also featured in the 2013 African Cup of Nations for Mali.
“A powerful defender who is strong in the air, Wague returned to Udinese last summer and the Malian international now joins up with The Reds until the end of the season.”
Wague could make his debut when Forest trade tackles with Birmingham City on Saturday at the St. Andrew's Stadium.
