Nottingham Forest owner Al-Hasawi sends message to fans on deadline day activity

Nottingham Forest 2

Nottingham Forest owner says no players are for sale.

Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi has moved to assure fans the club will not be selling their best players.

It has been an eventful 24 hours at the club with Forest deciding to fire under performing manager Stuart Pearce, and replacing him with former Crystal Palace and Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman.

Rumours of interest from Premier League side West Bromwich Albion in Forest's outstanding winger Michail Antonio had surfaced earlier on deadline day, covered by the Nottingham Post and referenced by the TeamTalk regional paper round-up.

Al-Hasawi took to his Twitter page to send a message to fans that nobody will be leaving the club before the transfer deadline.


The 24-year-old summer signing from Sheffield Wednesday has been excellent this season, scoring 10 goals and providing seven assists. Selling him on the cheap, or even at any price would have been entirely the wrong message to fans about the club's direction, and Al-Hasawi's declaration is clearly good news.

He added that he wanted supporters to rally round the club ahead of their upcoming match against Brighton.
