Nottingham Forest make u-turn on former Huddersfield Town star after failed deadline day move
The former Huddersfield Town left-back joined Forest in the summer, alongside Lewis O’Brien who is not in the updated squad list at the City Ground, but looked set for a move away after just six months as he travelled to Belgium earlier this week ahead of a proposed move to Anderlecht.
The defender has made 10 appearances for Steve Cooper’s side in the Premier League this term after turning down a new contract at Huddersfield to make the move to last season’s Championship play-off final winners.
Forest made six signings during the January transfer window, and added a seventh new player after the deadline when free agent Andre Ayew joined on a deal until the end of the season.
Toffolo’s time at the club appeared to be over for the rest of the campaign but his switch to the continent fell through with reports in Belgium that Anderlecht have submitted a complaint to FIFA. It is claimed the deal was completed and was waiting for an official sign off from Forest which never arrived.
Forest welcome Leeds United to the City Ground on Sunday with further reports claiming Toffolo was kept at the club over concern about a lack of cover at left-back were the club to suffer any injury problems.
