Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al Hasawi has tweeted to confirm that four players agreed to join the club on deadline day, despite the fact that only one signing was announced.
I can confirm 4 players have agreed to join the club and all paperwork was submitted before the 6pm deadline.

Striker Chris O’Grady signed from Brighton and Hove Albion yesterday on a season long loan, whilst rumours flew around in regards to a number of players potentially joining the Sky Bet Championship club.
Amongst the players reportedly set to join Nottingham Forest on deadline day were Lille winger Ryan Mendes, midfielder Jonny Williams and striker Nelson Oliveira. These would be quality additions to a Forest squad limited by the conditions of a transfer embargo and the announcement of three new players is likely to lift the mood amongst the Forest fans.
Yesterday, on a hectic deadline day, Nottingham Forest lost their star player in Michail Antonio to West Ham United, for a reported £7m. A fan favourite and one of the best players in the Championship, Antonio’s departure was huge news that disappointed the majority of Forest fans. To bring a positive aura back to Forest, suitable replacements for the loss of Antonio and also Jamie Paterson must be found by Fawaz Al Hasawi.
And it seems as if the Forest owner is set to do just that, with three or four more players set to be announced as Forest players, most notable, with two strikers included.
Forest fans will be keen to see new additions to their squad and today is likely to be a busy day on Trent-side as the club look to bolster their squad as the season moves into full swing.
What remains to be seen is just WHO these signings might be and HOW they will be implemented in the Forest squad. However, with all the paperwork completed on time before yesterdays 6pm deadline, the deals are more than likely completed. They just need to be made concrete to the fans.
