Jonjo Shelvey on verge of Nottingham Forest transfer exit after just six months following fall-out with Steve Cooper

JONJO SHELVEY is reportedly close to leaving Nottingham Forest six months after falling out with manager Steve Cooper.

The midfielder moved to the City Ground in January but was frozen out of the team after a disagreement with Cooper.

Shelvey, 31, is now set to bring his time in the East Midlands to an end.

The Telegraph have reported that the former Liverpool and Newcastle ace is closing in on a move to Turkish outfit Rizespor.

It is claimed that he is set to travel to Turkey to spend the season on loan with the club.

The ex-England international was left out of Nottingham Forest‘s 25-man squad for the Premier League season.

The club instead named midfielders Danilo, Nicolas Dominguez, Morgan Gibbs-White, Cheikhou Kouyate, Orel Mangala, Ibrahim Sangare, and Ryan Yates.

The report also states that Shelvey did have offers to stay in England from Burnley, Sheffield United and Leeds but has instead opted for the Turkish Super Lig.

Rizespor currently sit 5th in the league table after winning two of their first four games of the season.

Shelvey did become a regular team member after his move to Forest but was dropped after his error in the 2-0 loss to Aston Villa in April.


And he has not been in the squad since his disagreement with Cooper before Forest played Liverpool.

He did not travel with the club for the pre-season training camp in Valencia.

Forest are also keen to shift more than just Shelvey.

Emmanuel Dennis is another signing that could leave the club with Turkish clubs also interested in his signature.

The Nigerian striker joined Forest last summer from Watford but failed to replicate the form he showed at the Hornets.
