Nottingham Forest allowed Remo Freuler to leave the City Ground during the summer, with his move to Bologna finalised on deadline day. The player, however, is disappointed by how long it took the club to get rid of him.

Freuler has been talking to Watson regarding his move to Serie A. The player has returned to Italy after a single season playing in the Premier League and he will hope to get back to playing regular football.

The 31-year-old is currently on international duty with Switzerland. He made 33 appearances for the Reds last season but didn’t feature at all in any of Forest’s last six games of the season.

As a result, Freuler has been allowed to return to Italy, with Bologna securing his signature. Nicolas Dominguez headed the other way, with Bologna receiving a cash payment from Forest too.

The Switzerland star is keen to get going with his new club. However, he’s a little bit disappointed that things couldn’t be wrapped up a little bit quicker.

He told Watson: “The change dragged on, but I never trembled that it wouldn’t work. It’s just a shame that I’m only really getting started now.

“I took part in the whole preparation with Nottingham (Forest), I’m not that far away.”

Freuler wanted Forest exit to go through quicker

This was never going to be a quick deal for Forest to complete. The Reds had to make sure they had everything in place to sign Dominguez and Freuler was nothing more than a makeweight.

Freuler can now look forward to playing plenty of football for his new club. He will hope that Bologna plays a style of football that suits him; something which wasn’t really the case for him at Forest.

You don’t have a CV like Freuler’s without being a capable player. It’s no slight on him that Forest simply didn’t have the ball for enough games last season for him to become a competent performer.

Dominguez is a different sort of player. Forest will now hope that the Argentinean can have more of an impact than Freuler did at the club.
