It was a bitter sweet weekend for fans of a Nottingham Forest persuasion with Saturday’s 3-1 win over Leeds United being followed up with the disappointing news that promising youngster Oliver Burke had been sold to Red Bull Leipzig of Germany.
The 19-year-old has already netted four goals this season and the £13 million fee looks desperately cheap given the potential of the winger.
Forest will need to move quickly if they are to sign any replacements for Burke and with the deadline moving ever close, time looks to be ticking away in the Reds’ quest to spend the recouped cash.
Transfer activity is expected to be incoming at the City Ground and the club’s supporters are now keen to see some ambition shown by the club, following the decision to flog Burke.
