  • Lewis O’Brien and Harry Toffolo are close to joining Nottingham Forest
  • There was a hold up in the deal due to a disagreement over  Toffolo’s terms
  • It has now been resolved, meaning the move is ready to go ahead 

Newly promoted Premier League side Nottingham Forest have continued their busy summer by agreeing a deal to sign Huddersfield pair Lewis O’Brien and Harry Toffolo.

The deal is thought to be worth £10 million, and the players involved have completed their medicals over the past couple of days. 

Forest have been linked with the two players for some time, although the deal did appear to be close to falling through earlier this week.

Lewis O’Brien was a key player for Huddersfield last season as they finished third in the league

According to reports in the Athletic, Toffolo and Forest struggled to agree on his wages, meaning the move for both players was on the verge of falling through even after O’Brien had completed his medical.

It seems a compromise has now been reached, with the signings likely to be confirmed shortly.

Left back Toffolo was a key player for the Terriers last season, playing 45 games as they finished third in the Championship but lost the play-off final to Forest.

O’Brien also played an important role from midfield, scoring four goals from 46 games.

The Tricky Trees have been one of the busiest clubs in the Premier League this summer, signing eight new players already.

That extra depth could be essential as Forest look to cement their status in the top  flight of English football.
