Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi has named midfielder Ben Osborn in his side to face Olympiakos in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday evening.
However, it now appears there has been no further progression on the move, with Osborn set to line up in the Reds’ midfield for their second pre-season friendly of the Greece trip.
Forest confirmed Osborn’s selection when they shared the starting line-up via Twitter on Tuesday evening:

Can’t see why we’d play him if off? Seems an odd thing to do?
