Nottingham Forest-bound Nigeria striker says goodbye to his teammatesPublished: June 22, 2022
The transfer of Nigeria international Taiwo Awoniyi to English Premier League newcomers Nottingham Forest is imminent.
According to Berlin-based German newspaper B.Z., Awoniyi said goodbye to his Union Berlin teammates in the dressing room on Wednesday morning.
The report added that the former Liverpool starlet left Alte Försterei at 1005 hours with a trolley case to his car, got in and left the Union compound as his teammates were in the dressing room preparing for their first joint training session of the pre-season.
Awoniyi is expected to complete his move to Nottingham Forest this week, provided his release clause of 20 million euros is triggered and subject to a routine medical and agreeing personal terms.
The 24-year-old is set to make a return to the Premier League, a year after ending his six-year association with Liverpool without playing a single game due to a work permit obstacle.
He departs Union Berlin after mustering 25 goals in 65 appearances for the club across two spells, first on loan before the transfer was made permanent last summer.
