A decision on whether Nottingham Forest have signed Kamil Grosicki on loan from West Bromwich Albion is likely to come this week, according to the Nottingham Post.
The two clubs are currently awaiting a decision from the EFL over the potential transfer after the paperwork was reportedly submitted 21 seconds after the 5pm deadline for domestic deals on the 16th of October.
It has been 10 days since that deadline and Grosicki’s future is still hanging in the balance, while it is understood that there is set to be an arbitration hearing.
Sarah Clapson from the Nottingham Post has indicated that a decision is likely to be made this week.
Grosicki would be Forest’s 15th signing of the summer window – a period that also saw them bring in Chris Hughton to replace Sabri Lamouchi at the helm.
Hughton is not short of attacking options, having also signed Fulham winger Anthony Knockaert on loan from Fulham late in the window.
Even so, adding a player of Grosicki’s quality would be a boost, with the Poland international scoring 26 goals and adding 25 assists in his three seasons in the Championship.
Are these 10 facts about City Ground true or false?
This saga has dragged on for quite some time and you feel that both clubs will want it wrapped up soon, whichever way the decision falls.
With that in mind, the suggestion that we should have an answer this week is good news for Forest as they’ll be able to move on once it is clarified.
Signing Grosicki would be fantastic for them but they’re hardly short of attacking options at the moment, with the likes of Joe Lolley, Sammy Ameobi, Luke Freeman and Knockaert in the squad.
