Nottingham Forest chairman and owner Fawaz Al Hasawi has released the following statement after the closure of the summer transfer window.I would like to take this opportunity to inform our supporters that we today attempted to sign four players in a bid to further bolster our squad.
Regrettably, the value of each player rose over the course of the day to a point where we no longer considered any of our targets as suitable signings at this time.
This should not detract from the work we carried out earlier in the window. A lot of money has been invested and I am delighted with the nine players we have brought to the club this summer. The early additions have allowed us to make an excellent start to what I’m sure will be a very memorable campaign.
We will now turn our attention to the loan market before having another major push in the January transfer window.
I will of course keep you informed of any developments.
Thank you all for your continued support.
