Nottingham Forest striker could depart in January to generate funds

Nottingham Forest could be set to lose Apostolos Vellios in this January as Fawaz Al Hasawi looks to generate funds to repay John Jay Moores, according to the Sun.

Al Hasawi pulled the plug on a potential takeover by a consortium led by American businessman John Jay Moores.

However, Moores paid Al Hasawi a loan of £2.2m in December to help pay the players’ wages, when the takeover was reportedly imminent.

With Moores demanding his money back immediately, Al Hasawi could be forced to sell his stars and Henri Lansbury is expected to be the first one out the door.

He could be followed by Apostolos Vellios, who is wanted by Olympiacos.

The Greek striker has found himself behind Nicklas Bendtner and Britt Assombalonga in the pecking order and could force a move.

The 25-year-old was a former Everton striker who has netted 6 times in 26 appearances for Forest but he is wanted by Greek giants Olympiacos so he could force a move back to his homeland.

Nottingham Forest fans – would you be disappointed by the sale of Vellios? Or was he just not scoring enough? Let us know in the comments below…
