Jesse Marsch’s Leeds United could now reportedly miss out on the signing of Lewis O’Brien to Nottingham Forest.
Leeds United to miss out on Lewis O’Brien to Nottingham Forest
The Sun reported earlier in the summer that Leeds wanted to sign O’Brien from Huddersfield Town last year and were planning to make a £10 million bid this time around.
However, The Athletic have now reported that Nottingham Forest have reached an agreement with Huddersfield over the signings of midfielder O’Brien and Harry Toffolo.
Forest, who will play in the Premier League next season after winning promotion from the Championship, will now have to agree personal terms with the two Huddersfield players, who will then complete medical tests, according to the report.
Lewis O’Brien has been on the books of Huddersfield Town since 2009 and is one of the best midfielders in the Championship.
The 23-year-old made 46 appearances in the Championship for the Terriers last season, scoring three goals and providing three assists in the process.
O’Brien made 39 starts and three substitute appearances in the Championship for Huddersfield in 2020-21.
The youngster scored three goals and gave three assists in those games.
It will be interesting to see how O’Brien does in the Premier League next season, if indeed he moves to Forest this summer.
