Nottingham Forest are unsure over whether they should turn Anthony Knockaert’s loan move from Fulham into a permanent one.
Forest are reviewing Anthony Knockaert's future at the City Ground with the club reportedly looking to cut costs.

The winger, who has starred at this level in the past, joined the Reds earlier in the campaign, but he hasn’t made the impact that many would’ve hoped.
And, according to the Sun, (27/12/20), Forest aren’t in a position to sign Knockaert permanently unless they shift a few players, as they prepare for another year outside the Premier League.
The report states that Joe Worrall may have to move on to fund a potential transfer, and they also state that Joe Lolley could be made available for a move as Forest look to balance the books.
Quiz: Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Nottingham Forest appearances?
As you would expect, most supporters of the East Midlands outfit are not too happy with this development, particularly as Knockaert hasn’t shone since arriving at the City Ground.
Here we look at some of the comments from Twitter…
Personally I would get rid. We've got Joe Lolley who is a better player in my opinion. If Lolley isn't fit then we've got Mighten.
Why are we paying big wages and forcing ourselves to sell other players to balance costs? Seems madness to me

Good player but we don’t need him

If they sell any more assets to fund more over paid players then it’s time to really put pressure on the board!

Sadly, always played better against us, than he has thus far, for us.
If money can be used for a pacy or physical striker, or a goalscoring midfielder, then might be better served.#NFFC

No. Pointless unless he's actually playing. Big wages to come off the bench for 30 mins or so. Personally don't see why he's not played more.

Regardless of the source, signing 14 players in the last window, several of which will never get a game is always going to tie up funds – it’s not 🚀 These problems run deep at #nffc
