Apostolos Vellios has completed a move away from the City Ground penning a two-year deal with Greek side Atromitos, according to Nottinghamshire Live.

The 27-year-old spent last season on loan in Belgium with Waasland-Beveren, scoring just four goals in 17 games.

He fell out of favour with the Belgians, finishing the campaign training with the club’s development squad.

Vellios arrived at the City Ground from Iraklis in 2016, costing the Reds £1 million, according to BBC Sport.

The Greece international scored eight goals in 45 games for Forest but hasn’t played for the club since a 3-2 defeat on the final day of the 2017/18 campaign.

Under Philippe Montanier’s management Vellios hit the ground running. He scored stunning goals against Aston Villa and Rotherham United but failed to find the net consistently.

He confirmed his exit on Instagram on Monday, posting a picture of himself wearing the shirt of his new club:

Vellios’ post offered a message in Greek which read: “Very happy to be in this family. Let’s go!”

The move which sees the international depart the City Ground represents a solid piece of business for all parties.

Forest have a top-heavy squad and Vellios will probably be one of several players moved along by the club this summer.
