Report gives update on Kyle Ebecilio's situation at Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest are reportedly trying to move Kyle Ebecilio on from the club.

According to BBC Sport's live deadline day blog, as posted at 11:52, Nottingham Forest are looking to sort out the future of midfielder Kyle Ebecilio before tonight's transfer deadline.

Ebecilio, 21, started his career with Feyenoord before joining Arsenal in 2010, but left the Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2013 for a return to the Netherlands with Twente.

With ten goals in 66 games, Ebecilio became a key player for the Enschede-based side - but their financial woes led to his departure back in August.

The midfielder moved back to England, joining Nottingham Forest on loan for the duration of the season, with fans excited to see him in action having impressed in the Eredivisie.

However, Ebecilio has made just five appearances for Forest, and hasn't played since the beginning of October, as his spell at the City Ground has turned into a real nightmare.

Now, BBC Sport report that Forest are trying to get Ebecilio out of the club, but have no clause to send him back to Twente, meaning they have to find a club to take over his loan deal until the end of the season.

It's suggested that, if Ebecilio does end up finding a new club to join before tonight's deadline, it will free up crucial funds for Forest manager Dougie Freedman to spend - but if he stays, Freedman won't be able to make a new signing due to the FFP restrictions on Forest right now.

Will Ebecilio leave Forest today?
