Indeed, the 21-year-old midfielder said he was 'buzzing' that he will return to practice this week to the delight of his followers.
Back in full training this week and buzzing for it.— Ben Osborn (@OsbornOn1) October 25, 2015
And Al-Hasawi replied with a short but telling response.
Indeed, the Forest owner simply uttered the following four words:
Nottingham Forest currently sit 16th in the Championship table, just four points above the relegation zone after 13 league games.
And Dougie Freedman's men will welcome Osborn's return after six games without a win. This weekend gone, Forest drew 1-1 with Ipswich Town, having previously drawn with Burnley and lost at Bristol City.
Next up is a trip to Sheffield Wednesday, before another away clash at Preston. Then comes the derby.
Forest fans will want their side firing by then, with Derby County currently in form and up to fifth in the Championship table, only five points off top spot. Hopefully Osborn's return can give Nottingham Forest the boost they need.
