Nottingham Forest agree £20m deal for Dennis



Nottingham Forest have agreed a £20m deal with Watford for striker Emmanuel Dennis.

Forest have been on a massive recruitment drive following promotion to the Premier League.

They are still keen to improve Steve Cooper’s squad to ensure the club does not return straight back to the Championship.

The Nigerian scored 10 league goals in 35 appearances for Watford last season.

But he only scored two in his final 17 games as the Hornets were relegated.

He has started both of Watford’s games so far this term but is yet to find the net.

Forest have also been linked with Atalanta midfielder Remo Freuler and former Crystal Palace midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate.

But asked about potential signings, boss Cooper said: “Until we get a player over the line there’s no point in talking.

“It is no secret we are actively looking for players, we have been linked with more players than is actually true. (We’ve made) progress on some of them, others not really.

“We are still in that process of bringing players in and moving some out as well. It has been going on for a while and it will continue until the window closes.”
