Exclusive: West Brom star heading to Nottingham Forest after fee agreed
Kamil Grosicki is set to join Nottingham Forest on loan after Olympiacos agreed a fee with West Brom for the attacker, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The Greek outfit have made a permanent move to sign the out-of-favour 32-year-old before tonight’s deadline.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Olympiacos have had a bid of between £1-1.5million accepted by the Baggies.
It has then been agreed that the winger will join Championship strugglers Nottingham Forest on loan.
The Polish forward has failed to establish himself at The Hawthorns following an £855,000 move from Hull City in January.
Baggies boss Slaven Bilic has preferred the likes of Matt Phillips, Grady Diangana and Callum Robinson out wide with the latter two signed on permanent deals this summer.
