Chris Hughton has moved to provide an update on the situation of Kamil Grosicki, with Nottingham Forest hopeful of completing a deal for the West Bromwich Albion man.
Forest brought in Anthony Knockaert on loan with a view to a permanent deal from Fulham on Deadline Day, with the Reds also targeting a move for Grosicki.
The Reds agreed a deal to bring the winger in on a season-long loan deal, and the club believe that the relevant paperwork was submitted before Friday’s 5pm deadline.

This is yet to be confirmed by the EFL, however, and a decision is likely to be made at the start of next week, as Forest nervously wait and see whether they have managed to complete a deal or not.
Speaking in his post-match press conference and watching his side defeat Blackburn by a goal to nil at Ewood Park, Hughton confirmed that this was the case, and opened up on the situation.
Via Nottinghamshire Live, he said: “What I’ve been made aware of is that the paperwork has gone in. They are reviewing it at this moment. As a manager and a club we hope that is successful.”
Grosicki would become Forest’s 15th signing of the summer if the club manage to get a deal over the line, with the winger finding regular game time hard to come by since joining West Brom from Hull.
It would be the icing on the cake if Forest were to complete a deal for Grosicki.
They have plenty of exciting options going forward in Joe Lolley, Sammy Ameobi, Alex Mighten and now Knockaert, but Grosicki is still a much-needed signing.
They need to add more depth on the left-hand side, and the Poland international has been a quality player in the Championship before.
