According to reports, Nottingham Forest striker Emmanuel Dennis has agreed to join Istanbul Başakşehir on loan.

The 25-year-old will join the Turkish club before the end of the summer transfer window on Friday (September 15). Two teams were interested in him, but one has since agreed to a deal with Forest.

According to transfers specialist Fabrizio Romano, Dennis’ new team has agreed to a loan agreement but does not have the option to acquire the striker permanently. Dennis will travel to Turkey as soon as the final logistics are worked out.

“EXCL: Istanbul Başakşehir agree loan deal to sign Emmanuel Dennis from Nottingham Forest,” Romano wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.
