Nottingham Forest to sell star by 30 June to avoid new points deduction



Nottingham Forest must sell one of their star players by 30th June as they look to get on top of their financial situation, sources have told Football Insider.

Forest could be at risk of receiving another points deduction next season for potentially breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules if they don’t balance the books in the next few weeks.


The original independent commission, which handed the Reds a four-point deduction in March this year, showed the club are at risk of breaching the rules again this season.

It would mean Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have to make around £30million in profit from player sales before the deadline at the end of June.

It’s been a turbulent few months for Forest since they were handed their four-point deduction for breaching the spending rules.

An appeal board has turned down their case to have that punishment reduced, deciding to uphold the original decision.


That means the Reds remain three points clear of third-bottom Luton Town heading into the final couple of games of the Premier League season.

While top-flight survival would ease some of their financial concerns, Forest are still likely going to have to sell one of their star players.


Football Insider revealed on 5 May they could be forced to sell Brazilian defender Murillo this summer after a host of Premier League clubs have been monitoring his situation.

There is also likely to be interest in attackers Anthony Elanga and Morgan Gibbs-White, with Football Insider revealing the Reds are looking for a fee upwards of £50million to sanction a move for the latter.

Although Nuno won’t want to lose any of those players as he looks to push on next season, the financial fair play concerns surrounding the club may leave him with no choice.
