Emmanuel Dennis is now edging closer to leaving Nottingham Forest. The striker is a wanted man in Turkey and a departure now looks likely to happen in the coming days.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the player is going to make his decision in the near future. Adana Demirspor and Istanbul Basaksehir have both presented loan deals for the player.

Interestingly, Forest will get his £42,000-a-week salary off the books for the season too. Both proposals include the clubs paying Dennis in full for the duration of his time in Turkey.

Things just haven’t worked out for the 25-year-old at the City Ground. He signed for a fee in the region of £15 million last summer but started just six Premier League games for the Reds.

Steve Cooper never really fancied him from the off. He wasn’t really the type of striker needed in his system; with compatriot Taiwo Awoniyi the main focal point of the attack.

Forest tried to move Dennis on during the summer transfer window in England. Leeds were linked with a move at one point, whilst Udinese were also keen to take him to Italy.

The striker is better off leaving Forest for the good of his career. He barely trained with the Reds senior team during pre-season and took part in B-Team friendlies.

It’s hard to see him convincing Cooper any time soon either. He’s now landed Divock Origi and Chris Wood has also started the season in pretty decent shape.

Dennis will want to play football to get back into the international setup. He must be envious of his good friend Awoniyi given how he’s taken off of later.

Heading to Turkey seems like a wise option. Hopefully, the player can play plenty of football over there and win a permanent move away from Forest next summer.
