NOW OFFICIAL - Chalobah's loan to Nottingham Forest looks ready to finally go ahead

Charlie Crowhurst

This one has taken a bit longer than expected, but it looks like we finally found a temporary home for Nathaniel Chalobah.

And it's not Watford, as much as Gianfranco Zola liked to talk up the budding super star - and why wouldn't he; Chalobah was excellent for him last season - it is in fact Nottingham Forest, as had been rumored earlier this month.  The reason for the new destination is probably a combination of wanting to expose Chalobah to a different system and philosophy and Forest being able to afford a higher loan fee and wage contribution than Watford.

Seven hours later, from the same Sky Sports source:

I expect an official announcement soon of this "emergency" loan until January, and hopefully in-time for Chalobah to suit up this weekend for the promotion contenders.
