Adlene Guedioura could be set to leave Nottingham Forest this summer with Al Kuwait keen on the midfielder.
According to Le Buteur, talks are at an advanced stage between the Algerian African Cup of Nations star and his potential new club.
The 33-year-old returned to Forest in 2018. Across three spells at the City Ground, he has played 100 games and scored six goals.
A move to Kuwait would be a surprising one; although probably more lucrative financially than his current contract at Forest.
The Guardian reported following Martin O’Neill’s sacking that Guedioura has a bust-up with the now-departed manager, during a game at Ipswich last season.
Guedioura is preparing for Friday’s African Cup of Nations Final, where Algeria will face Senegal.
It now seems unlikely that he will return to Forest and could well sign for the Kuwaiti outfit.
The Seat Pitch Summary
Forest can live with the departure of Guedioura.
He has failed to scale the heights of his first couple of spells since Aitor Karanka signed him in January 2018.
The summer signings at the club would no doubt force the Algerian further down the pecking order and a departure makes sense.
At 33, the days of Guedioura influencing Championship games on a regular basis seem consigned to the past.
Moving him on looks good for all parties and could allow Forest some more room to manoeuvre with new signings.
