Agents Furious with Nottingham Forest Over Delayed Fee Payments
Nottingham Forest is facing the wrath of agents due to their failure to make timely fee payments. Agents have issued a warning to Forest, stating that further action may be taken if the issue is not resolved promptly.
Agents Seek FA Intervention
Agents have the legal right to request the Football Association (FA) to impose a transfer embargo. Nottingham Forest has failed to fulfill their financial obligations to agents, leading to their dissatisfaction and potential action.
Despite being active in the transfer market, Forest has been slow in making payments to agents. This issue has persisted even as Steve Cooper, Forest’s manager, made 14 signings during the summer transfer window in preparation for their second season in the Premier League. Notably, Forest secured a club record £30 million deal to acquire Ibrahim Sangare from PSV.
Possible Consequences for Nottingham Forest
Forest’s recent poor performance, including a defeat to Everton, has further exacerbated the situation. The team has lost four out of their last five matches, leaving them in 15th place, just six points above the relegation zone after 14 games. If the fee payment issue is not resolved promptly, Forest may face a transfer embargo, preventing them from strengthening their squad in the upcoming January transfer window.
With the transfer window set to reopen in the new year, clubs will have the opportunity to make new signings. Cooper had previously made six signings in January last season, which proved instrumental in helping Forest avoid relegation. They won three out of their last six matches, finishing four points clear of the drop zone.
