Yet to be named on the bench this season, and fallen further down the pecking order, Emmanuel Dennis is set to leave Nottingham Forest.
Nottingham Forest and Super Eagles forward, Emmanuel Dennis is reportedly set to move to Turkey, with Adana Demirspor and Istanbul Basaksehir as potential destinations, Soccernet.ng reports.
The forward was linked with a move away from England, with Saudi clubs reportedly interested, but the forward opted to continue his footballing career in Europe.
Italian clubs like Udinese and Ademola Lookman’s Atalanta gained interest in the 5ft-9-in-tall Nigerian, but as per Fabrizio Romano, Emmanuel Dennis has now decided to play in Turkey and will leave Nottingham Forest.
The choice of clubs now lies in Dennis’s hands as Adana Demirspor and Istanbul Basaksehir have presented loan bids that will cover Dennis’s total appearance fees and wages during the time he will spend in Turkey.

Dennis joined Nottingham Forest from Watford in August 2022 and made twenty-five appearances for the club, scoring just two goals.
The twenty-five-year-old’s most notable career moment was in Club Brugge, when he scored at the Santiago Bernabeu against Real Madrid, hitting Ronaldo’s iconic siu goal celebration.
He scored twenty-nine goals in a hundred and sixteen games for the Belgian sides, and since then has played for FC Koln, Watford and Nottingham Forest.
Towards the end of last season, Dennis struggled for playing time, getting just eighteen minutes of football in Forest’s last five games, and it’s no surprise to see the attacker linked with a move away from the club.
