Nottingham Forest have received an official offer from Adana Demirspor for their striker Emmanuel Dennis, who is eager to join the Turkish side, according to reports.

Dennis has been frozen out at Nottingham Forest just a year after joining the club from Watford. Since the transfer window remains open in Turkey, he still has time to leave the Premier League club.

According to Sports Digitale journalist Yagiz Sabuncuoglu, Turkish Super Lig side Adana Demirspor have submitted a bid for Dennis. In a further development, they have agreed a deal with the Nigeria international.

An agreement between the two clubs is also said to be close, which means Dennis could be on his way to Turkey this week. The value of Adana Demirspor’s bid has not been revealed.

Patrick Kluivert is the Adana outfit’s new manager this season after Vincenzo Montella guided them into the Europa Conference League qualifiers last term. They failed to reach the group stage of UEFA’s tertiary tournament, but are still putting together an intriguing project.

Their squad also contains one-time Watford loanee M’baye Niang, ex-Tottenham midfielder Benjamin Stambouli and former Manchester United winger Nani.

Dennis is not the only player who could leave Forest beyond the closure of the English transfer window. A feature from The Athletic has speculated that goalkeeper Ethan Horvath could be on his way out too.

After spending last season on loan with Luton Town – which means he never shared a pitch with Dennis – Horvath has returned to find himself behind new goalkeepers Odysseas Vlachodimos and Matt Turner in the pecking order at the City Ground.

Although the report from The Athletic did not mention where he might go next, it suggested his departure may be just days away as well.
