Nottingham Forest have confirmed the departure of striker Karim Ansarifard to Qatari club Al-Sailiya.

Ansarifard has signed a two-year deal with his new club and departs Forest for an undisclosed fee after spending less than a year at the City Ground.

The 29-year-old failed to truly make his mark since arriving at the club in November 2018, as he made just 12 appearances and scored just two goals last term.

He has now been allowed to move on by new boss Sabri Lamouchi, with Al-Sailiya reportedly seeing off interest from the likes of Rangers, Hamburg and Besiktas to land his signature.

Forest confirmed news of Ansarifard’s departure via their Twitter account on Friday morning:

Plenty of Forest fans reacted to the announcement, with many wondering why Ansarifard had been allowed to leave after spending such a short time at the club. Other supporters also urged Forest to bolster their attacking ranks by signing a new striker.

Here are some of the responses…
