Nottingham Forest manager Chris Hughton is hoping that the Championship club are able to sign Kamil Grosicki from West Brom.
The domestic transfer window slammed shut last Friday and, according to the Nottingham Post, the paperwork for Grosicki’s proposed move to the City Ground was submitted too late.
However, although Hughton doesn’t know the exact ins and outs of the deal, he still wants to ensure Forest are able to complete the out-of-window addition of the Poland international.
After being asked if there’s an update on Grosicki, as quoted by the Nottingham Post, he said: “No, I’m not aware.
“I’m not quite sure how long we’ll have to wait, but certainly we hope it will be good news.”
Grosicki has been left out of Slaven Bilic’s squad for the Premier League so if he’s not allowed to join Forest, the former Hull winger won’t be able to play again until the registration period re-opens in the January transfer window.
That would be a massive shame for all parties concerned because West Brom will be paying a player they cannot play, the player’s career will be put on hold and Forest won’t be able to sign a player they clearly want.
Grosicki was linked with a move to Olympiakos and then a loan move to Forest on the international deadline day but a deal failed to materialise.
We hope this is cleared up soon though so the Polish ace can continue playing club football because he’s been on fire for his country lately.
