West Brom winger Kamil Grosicki will find out in the next two days whether he is allowed to join Nottingham Forest, according to the Nottingham Post.
The newspaper reports on their website that Grosicki, 32, agreed to join Forest on deadline day but the paperwork was not submitted in time for the deal to go through.
It is understood that lawyers are now involved in the transfer and the EFL will decide on whether to allow the move within the next 48 hours.
For Grosicki’s sake, we hope it goes through. But, for the sake of West Brom, we hope he stays.
Slaven Bilic signed Grosicki from Hull City in January and although the Poland international played a role in helping the club win promotion to the Premier League, the West Brom manager simply hasn’t seen a role for the speedster in the top-flight.
Grosicki hasn’t made a single appearance in the league and only made the matchday squad once when he was an unused substitute against Leicester on the opening day.
Clearly, Grosicki isn’t in Bilic’s plans and his decision to want to leave is totally justified.
However, should the Baggies be offloading him?
Grosicki was in lethal form in the most recent international break, scoring a hat-trick in Poland’s 5-1 win over Finland before helping his side to an impressive draw against Italy and a win over Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Matt Phillips and Kyle Edwards have hardly shown themselves to be at the level required in the Premier League, whereas Grosicki has at least been in better form more recently. After the coronavirus-enforced break in play last season, he was one of Bilic’s better players.
Grosicki’s time at The Hawthorns will be short and sweet if this deal goes through and we hope that the EFL can resolve matters as speedy as possible so his career doesn’t stall and he gets stuck in limbo between now and January.
