Nottingham Forest’s hopes of landing Kamil Grosicki finally look set to be extinguished.

According to Polish outlet Legia, the international is edging closer to a move back to Legia Warsaw.

The 32-year-old played for to years with the club earlier in his career and now looks set for a return.

During his previous spell he only managed 12 appearances, scoring once for the top-flight outfit.

Grosicki has been linked with Forest a few times previously and they came close to a breakthrough during the summer transfer window.

The 80-cap international was at Forest to complete a deal but the paperwork was submitted 21 seconds after the deadline.

A deal was in place for the January window too but Grosicki didn’t appear keen to sign for the Reds.

It had looked as though the winger might earn a reprieve under Sam Allardyce.

He played in Premier League games against Wolves and West Ham, registering an assist against the Hammers.

Grosicki earns £25,000-a-week at The Hawthorns and he wouldn’t have proved a cheap option for the Reds.

Legia had originally had doubts over whether they could afford to sign the Albion performer.

It would seem desperation has struck though.

With no football forthcoming at West Brom, Grosicki knows he needs to play ahead of the European Championships next summer.

The former Hull man will pen an 18-month contract in Warsaw and that will pretty much end any aspirations Forest have of ever signing him.

It’s probably not the worst thing to happen.

Chris Hughton has Joe Lolley, Anthony Knockaert, Alex Mighten and Sammy Ameobi in his ranks and if anything he needs to lower the average age of his squad.

Only time will tell whether or not Forest truly regret not doing more to sign the tricky forward.
