‘Good riddance,’ ‘Now go replace him’ – Nottingham Forest fans react as £15m striker departs



After avoiding relegation by the narrowest of margins in the Sky Bet Championship last season, Nottingham Forest were bound to make significant changes over the summer.

Mark Warburton is preparing for his first full season with the club, but has been dealt a blow, with Britt Assombalonga leaving the City Ground for Middlesbrough in a £15m deal.

Assombalonga’s 14 goals in the Championship last season were vital to helping Forest avoid a return to League One, and Warburton’s side will miss the 24-year-old’s presence.

Since arriving at Forest in 2014, Assombalonga has scored 30 goals in just 65 Championship appearances, becoming one of the division’s most prolific strikers.

Whilst Forest fans are gutted about Assombalonga’s departure, some are looking at the positives, calling for the mammoth £15m transfer-fee to be reinvested in the squad.

Here is some Forest reaction…
