Kamil Grosicki’s loan move from West Bromwich Albion to Nottingham Forest remains up in the air due to delays reportedly caused by the player’s indecision, which has drawn a frustrated response from fans of the East Midlands club.
It is understood that the Reds may have to wait until early next week to find out whether the paperwork was submitted in time and the move has gone through.
According to The Athletic’s Paul Taylor, the time it took for Grosicki to decide to join the Reds on loan is to blame for the delay that has put the deal in jeopardy.
EFL clubs had until 5pm on Friday to get any transfers with other English clubs done and it is believed that despite Forest submitting the paperwork at the last minute they’re confident their deal will be approved.
Grosicki is yet to feature in the league for West Brom this season but is a proven player at Championship level and would be a strong addition to Chris Hughton’s squad.
Do Nottingham Forest and Derby County have these 10 things in common?
Even so, it appears the suggestion that the player’s indecision is to blame for the uncertainty over the deal has left plenty of Reds supporters unimpressed.

He's turned us down twice and we've still gone back in. Rather we gave the playing time to Mighten then to be honest.

I hope it doesn’t go through. Attitude on him. Should be honoured to sign.

Not trying to be dour about it but hardly fills me with confidence about his attitude to playing for us. Hope he proves me wrong if it goes through

If he has to think twice it’s a no from me, we need players who want to be here

He’s buzzing to join then…

Spot on sir, horrible little man

I’m sure he’s a decent player but rushing to pay a 32year old who doesn’t really want to play for us £20k(?)+ a week, when we have such an exciting talent trying to breakthrough in the same position feels odd…
