English Premier League club Nottingham Forest is prepared to offload Nigerian international Emmanuel Dennis who joined last summer.

The Super Eagles forward joined the Premier League returnees for an agreed fee of about £20million.

Emmanuel Dennis was impressive for Watford during the 2021/2022 season netting 10 goals and also creating six assists, but it could not help the club which eventually got relegated.

Complete Sports reports that the club manager Steve Cooper is prepared to bolster his squad in January, but they must first offload some players.

It was gathered that Dennis is one of the players they are looking to allow to leave before the end of the winter transfer window.

According to the English FA rules, players cannot play for three teams in the same season.
