Nottingham Forest striker Apostolos Vellios has hinted that he might be keen to resurrect his City Ground career next season.

The Greek striker is to return to Forest after spending the 2018/19 campaign on loan with Belgian outfit Waasland-Beveren.

In 17 appearances for his temporary club, he netted four goals. He did fall down the pecking order though and didn’t score from December onwards.

The 27-year-old has now indicated in a cryptic Instagram post that he might hold a desire to revive his flailing Forest career.

Vellios is hardly prolific for the Reds, netting eight goals in 45 appearances. His Instagram message read as follows:

Lewis Grabban netted 17 goals last term, whilst Daryl Murphy and Karim Ansarifard also chipped in with a few goals too.

The Seat Pitch Verdict

If Apostolos Vellios is the answer then I’m not entirely sure what the question is.

Other than a few goals during pre-season ahead of last season, the Greek striker has flattered to deceive, proving a pretty underwhelming signing.

Vellios only cost £1 million, according to BBC Sport. He has, however, proved to be a scorer of great goals, as opposed to a great goalscorer.

Forest have moved on in the striker’s absence and he should be one of several players which the club looks to move on this summer.

Tyler Walker went out on loan and smashed in 26 goals at Mansfield Town, so Vellios netting four in Belgium’s second division won’t have done himself any favours of a first-team revival at all.
