Fawaz Al-Hasawi sends positive message to Nottingham Forest fans

Forest City Ground

Fawaz Al-Hasawi reveals that Nottingham Forest’s financial situation will be resolved imminently.

Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi has revealed on social networking site Twitter that he turned down bids for players on transfer deadline day.

The Championship club are struggling financially and were placed on a transfer embargo last year, which prevented them from signing players on permanent deals in the January transfer window.

Forest have now been placed under a full embargo over the non-payment of £1.5 million fee for Britt Assombalonga to Peterborough United, according to Sky Sports.

This means that the Nottingham-based club will not be able to sign players during next week’s emergency loan window.

However, club owned Al-Hasawi has taken to Twitter to allay the fans’ fears, and has assured them that everything is being done to avert that situation.

In fact, the Kuwaiti businessman seems so confident that the problem will be resolved imminently that he refused to accept deadline-day bid for his players.

Forest are currently 12th in the Championship table with 34 points from 28 matches, just seven points above the relegation zone.

Dougie Freedman is in charge of the first team at the moment, having replaced Stuart Pearce as the manager earlier this week.
