Journalist provides update as Nottingham Forest man edges closer to exit



Ben Osborn’s transfer from Nottingham Forest to Sheffield United look set to be completed on Thursday morning, Nottingham Post journalist Paul Taylor has reported.

It was revealed on Tuesday that the newly-promoted Premier League side had seen a bid accepted for the midfielder, and it was initially claimed that the deal would be completed on Wednesday.

Now however, it looks as the Blades will have to wait until Thursday to confirm the arrival of the 24-year-old, despite progress being made.

It appears as though there is no cause for concern for Sheffield United fans though, as Taylor confirmed that there were ‘no issues’ and the delay was simply as a result of the two clubs ‘going through the usual processes’.

According to Taylor, Forest are set to receive a fee of just over £3million, with the fact that Osborn’s at The City Ground was set to expire in 12 months preventing the Championship side from pushing for a higher fee.

A graduate of Forest’s academy, Osborn has made a total of 230 appearances in all competitions for the club, scoring 16 goals.

The Verdict

This still looks to be a fairly simple situation with regards to this transfer.

It does seem as though the deal is progressing, and it is always hard to know exactly how long these things are going to take, particularly when it comes to the finer details of a deal.

Even so, you wouldn’t blame one or two Sheffield United fans if they were to get slightly nervous about this delay.

As is often said in football, it’s never ’til it’s over, and that applies to transfers just as much as anything else, so there may be some who are unlikely to fully relax until the deal is officially confirmed all round.
