Manager Paul Hart turned his attentions to the England Under-20 star after Wolves forward Nathan Blake turned down the chance to move to the City Ground in a similar deal.
With Craig Bellamy recovered from a knee operation and Michael Bridges signed on a three-month loan from Leeds, the youngster's chances at St James' Park are likely to be limited this season.
Sir Bobby Robson is happy for the player to go out to lower league clubs to gain first-team experience, after he enjoyed a successful spell at Watford last term.
Forest are in real trouble this term after making the play-offs last season and are hoping Chopra can score the goals to fire them out of relegation trouble.
