Nottingham Forest are expected to confirm the loan signing of West Brom winger Kamil Grosicki on Friday evening.
There are wide reports that the Polish international has agreed terms on a season-long loan deal at the City Ground.
It’s a case of second-time lucky for Forest, who almost reportedly completed this deal two weeks ago in the last deadline.
With the season-long loan part out of the way, could Grosicki return to the Hawthorns after it is completed?
The short answer appears to be no.
Polish journalist Mateusz Borek has claimed that Forest have the option to hand Grosicki a two-year deal at the club at the end of this season if they are promoted.

It would be a good move for Grosicki, with the chances of football at the Hawthorns clearly limited under Slaven Bilic.
If Bilic was to use the 32-year-old, it would have been against Burnley, given his eclectic form during the international break with Poland.
With not many options out wide, this is a massive call from Bilic who will now have to rely on Kyle Edwards and possibly Callum Robinson in those areas.
The chances of Forest earning promotion at this rate are very slim, although they have just appointed Chris Hughton which is a smart choice.
Forest are currently in the relegation zone and are yet to register a single point in the Championship, so it would take something special.
