West Brom winger Kamil Grosicki is no stranger to deadline day problems, with a number throughout his career.
The Polish international was set to join Nottingham Forest on Friday on an initial loan with the option to turn the move permanent at the end of the season.
It was claimed in the Polish media that if Forest were promoted, they could sign Grosicki on a two-year deal, but the move was never confirmed.
What was the hold-up?
Meczyki have reported on their website that Forest or the Baggies failed to submit the relevant paperwork by 21 seconds.
Despite being such a small margin, the Polish outlet claim that the FA will not approve or confirm any switch between the two clubs for the transfer of Grosicki.
As it stands, Forest and West Brom are preparing for legal action, with lawyers reportedly likely to get involved to resolve this delay in the transfer.
It was, at one stage, guaranteed that Grosicki would be moving to the Hawthorns, but it appears that there has been a huge mistake.
The report doesn’t clarify which end it was from, but if it was West Brom, it could suggest that they weren’t 100% sure of letting Grosicki leave the Hawthorns.
After his hattrick with Poland this week, Slaven Bilic was handed a timely reminder of what Grosicki could do and based on the reaction of fans, they were eager to see him involved for the Baggies this season.
Time will tell, but as it stands, the 32-year-old remains a West Brom player.
