Report: Talks progressing well as Veldwijk nears Nottingham Forest exit

Nottingham Forest forward Lars Veldwijk is closing on a temporary exit away from the club.

The Nottingham Post has reported that talks are progressing well over a loan deal, which will see Nottingham Forest striker Lars Veldwijk join PEC Zwolle on a loan deal for next season.

The 23-year-old appears to be on the verge of a move back to the Netherlands, with his chances of getting first team game time under Dougie Freedman at the City Ground looking bleak.

The Scot has some good attacking options such as Britt Assombalonga and Tyler Walker among others, who he will use at different points next season which appears to have funnelled the forward into a temporary exit

Makes sense all round

It’s a good deal all round and one which should leave all parties satisfied.

The player gets to go somewhere he will be featuring in the first team on a weekly basis and Forest will benefit because the player can stay fit and work on various weaknesses in his game.

The move should allow Veldwijk to return to the club as a much better player than the one who leaves.

Permanent move in the future?

It’s far too early to judge whether the loan deal could turn into a permanent move.

Forest will want to see him playing out of his skin for the Dutch club, but that will motivate them to push for a permanent deal.

If he underperforms, it could be more difficult for them to move him on if Freedman has already partly decided that Veldwijk won’t feature in his long term plans.
