Nottingham Forest: Fans in love with price fetched for departing forward

Nottingham Forest fans were happy with the reported price fetched for departing forward Arvin Appiah, who moved to Spain to join UD Almeria.

According to Nottinghamshire Live, the 18-year-old winger has moved to the Spanish side for a fee believed to be in the region of £8m.

The youngster was also thought to have been a target for Manchester United, who were taunted by his new club Almeria, who tweeted: “We are sorry @ManUtd_ES, Arvin Appiah is red and white.”

Appiah came through the academy at Nottingham Forest, and made eight appearances, scoring one goal for the first-team in his time at the City Ground (via Transfermarkt).

The 18-year-old becomes the 15th player to leave the East Midlands this summer, with Sabri Lamouchi’s side recouping more than £12m in transfer fees.

The Forest faithful seem to be over the moon with the transfer fee fetched for Appiah, as they took to Twitter to give their reactions.

Here is a selection of tweets from Nottingham Forest fans:
