Nottingham Forest fans concerned with Arvin Appiah sale on deadline day

Championship Picks

The English transfer window may have been shut for nearly a month now, but clubs lower down the pyramid and across Europe have had the pleasure of still being able to buy and sell players.

However, that privilege ends today and Nottingham Forest have become a wealthy victim from it.

Young winger Arvin Appiah has joined Spanish second division side Almeria for £8m, signing a five-year deal.

The 18-year-old had been linked to Manchester United despite signing a new long-term deal at the City Ground back in January.

Much of the Reds fanbase have taken to social media to discuss the move

One supporter said the club would regret letting him go with another adding that they shouldn’t be selling as the squad is getting weaker. A further individual simply labelled it a disgrace.

Appiah scored on debut for Forest last year, coming on as a substitute in their Carabao Cup loss to Burton Albion.

The England Under-19 international has played just eight times since then; once this season in the very same competition against Fleetwood Town.

Here’s some of the best reaction:
