Nottingham Forest owner Al-Hasawi comments on Lansbury to Burnley reports

Nottingham Forest owner attempts to diffuse controversial transfer rumour.

Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi has attempts to diffuse a controversial transfer rumour concerning the club.

SkySports have reported the club have accepted a bid of £4 million from fellow Championship side Burnley for midfielder Henri Lansbury.

Al-Hasawi insists Forest have not however, and said he would not make such a decision without speaking first with manager Dougie Freedman.

Deluged with comments from fans to his twitter account, the owner took to social media to urge patience.




Forest lost their first game of the season 1-0, at Brighton and Hove Albion, a match in which Lansbury featured.

Lansbury would be tough to replace given the club's transfer embargo, restricting them to free agents and loan signings.

The possibility of Lansbury moving on remains there, with Burnley's interest seemingly genuine.

Selling the former Arsenal trainee would bring about fresh doubts as to whether they could cash in on Michail Antonio also, who The Guardian reported has been subject of interest from West Brom.
