Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi has taken to social media to update supporters about their transfer activity.
He has stated the club have submitted paperwork to sign four players, and urged fans to wait official confirmation of the signings.
These players are believed to include Lille winger Ryan Mendes (as confirmed by the French side via their official Twitter feed) and Benfica striker Nelson Oliveira (reported by Portuguese newspaper A Bola).
Nottingham Forest are only permitted to sign players on loan and as free agents due to a transfer embargo imposed by the Football League, which was in place for a second successive window.
I can confirm 4 players have agreed to join the club and all paperwork was submitted before the 6pm deadline.— @FAWAZ_ALHASAWI (@fawaz_alhasawi1) September 1, 2015
Al-Hasawi also went onto clarify the decision to sell winger Michail Antonio to West Ham, despite having previously stood firm over the player.
He said that his stance was purely not to sell to a Championship rival, which could hurt Forest, and the £7 million fee will ensure, he hopes, the club will no longer be under transfer embargo.
Had Antonio not wanted to leave, we wouldn't have sold him for any price. But he expressed a desire to play in the Premier League. #nffc— @FAWAZ_ALHASAWI (@fawaz_alhasawi1) September 1, 2015
