Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to speculation club have agreed playmaker deal

By Amir Mir

Henri Lansbury has agreed to join Aston Villa but the stumbling block is the new potential Nottingham Forest owners – and fans on Twitter have reacted with mixed emotions.

The Sun claims a deal to sell the Forest playmaker has been agreed by current owner Fawaz Al Hasawi but new American owners led by John Jay Moores, “have thrown a spanner in the works with advanced talks to sell Lansbury to local rivals Derby”.

Lansbury has been in fine form this season for Philippe Montanier’s side, scoring six goals and providing three assists for a team that is two points above the relegation zone in the Championship.

The Frenchman revealed prior to their FA Cup clash against Wigan on Saturday afternoon that Lansbury will not be a part of the squad because of injury.

Fans on Twitter felt that the delay in the sale of the club is perhaps resulting in Lansbury’s transfer to another side being delayed at this moment in time.

One supporter felt that Lansbury wants to move to Villa, but the potential new owners are blocking a move, therefore, he is refusing to play for Forest.

Overall, fans did not know who to blame as they felt that Lansbury had saved Forest from being an absolute shambles this term, while others felt he should still give 100 per cent to the club.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
