Andre Ayew agrees to join Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest have reached a verbal agreement to sign free agent Andre Ayew on a contract until the end of the season.

Sky Sports News understands Ayew is included in Forest’s squad list of 25 that was submitted to the Premier League earlier this afternoon. Ayew, who played under Cooper at Swansea, was reportedly also interesting Everton on Transfer Deadline Day.

However, it isn’t clear if boss Steve Cooper included Lewis O’Brien in that list at the expense of one of Forest’s injured players after his loan deal to Blackburn Rovers collapsed.

The situation is complicated further because Blackburn are appealing against the EFL’s decision to reject applications for the transfers of O’Brien and Rochdale’s Ethan Brierley on Deadline Day.

A Blackburn statement read: “One of the deals was a very ambitious target and it was only confirmed that he was able to join us late Tuesday afternoon.

“Despite the club’s best endeavours to complete all the required elements of this loan transfer, due to events we believe to be outside of our control, the deadline for submission was late and despite the club stating the mitigating reasons for the delayed submission, our application has today been rejected by the EFL.

“Our application for the second deal – for the permanent transfer of a promising young player – was also delayed due to unsigned paperwork and technical issues encountered by the club at the point of submission.
