Chris Hughton has claimed that Nottingham Forest are hopeful of completing a deal to sign West Brom winger Kamil Grosicki.
The Forest boss shared that the FA are currently reviewing their paperwork after the deal wasn’t completed or announced on deadline day on Friday.
Reports from Poland had claimed that the paperwork was submitted 21 seconds late, and both clubs were preparing for legal action.
Hughton has denied those reports and admitted that the clubs are hopeful of the deal going through at some point this week.
“What I’ve been made aware of is that the paperwork has gone in,” he told Nottinghamshire Live.
“They are reviewing it at this moment. As a manager and a club we hope that is successful.”1
The longer this transfer story goes on, the more complicated it appears to become.
Grosicki is currently in limbo between the two clubs, although after these comments, it appears more likely that he will become a Nottingham Forest player.
West Brom could be making a mistake with this one, with Slaven Bilic having limited options in wide areas at the Hawthorns.
After switching to a 4-2-3-1 formation, his only back-up options are Kyle Edwards and Matt Phillips, and both have shown that they currently are nowhere near good enough for the Premier League.
Grosicki came back to the Baggies after shining on international duty with Poland, and in great form to prove himself – sadly, he won’t get that opportunity.
