Nottingham Forest on the verge of transfer agreement

Published

on

Nottingham Forest are on the cusp of sealing a deal to sign Glenn Murray from Brighton and Hove Albion. 

As per Paul Taylor at The AthleticMurray is in the process of returning to Brighton from his loan with Watford, before moving to the City Ground.

There, he will reunite with Chris Hughton on a permanent contract until the end of the season.

Hughton and Murray, of course, crossed paths during their spell at Brighton, winning promotion to the Premier League in their time with the Seagulls.

The 2016/17 campaign saw Murray score 23 goals, as Brighton finished runners-up to Newcastle United in the Championship and win promotion to the top-flight.

Murray then helped the Seagulls establish themselves in the Premier League.

However, the striker’s game time had become limited and, at the start of the 2020/21 season, he had agreed to join Watford in the Championship. With the Hornets, Murray started just one league fixture and now finds himself on the move once more.

As per Taylor, he will link up with Forest imminently, signing a permanent transfer until the end of the season.

Forest drew 0-0 with Barnsley yesterday in the Championship and currently sit just three points outside the relegation zone.

Grabban? Ameobi? – Can you name which Nottingham Forest player scored each these 15 goals this season?

Who scored in the 2-1 home defeat to Bristol City?

The Verdict 

Forest are in a worrying position in the Championship table and despite having the likes of Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor on the books, they aren’t scoring enough goals.

Murray knows all about scoring goals in the Championship and he’s a player that Hughton can trust.

That’s going to be important as Forest gear up for a ‘backs against the wall’ second-half to the season.

Murray might be a short-term solution at 37, but Forest need a player of his ilk to help them avoid the unthinkable this season.

This will likely turn out to be a good signing for Hughton.
