Roy Keane leaves/Sammy Ameobi set to sign for Nottingham Forest

Roy Keane is leaving Nottingham Forest

As confirmed by Nottingham Post reporter Paul Taylor, Roy Keane is about to leave Nottingham Forest again.

Keane returned to the City Ground last season to work alongside Martin O’Neill.

O’Neill and Keane had previously worked in tandem for the Irish national team.

In the end, the 2018-19 season petered out for Nottingham Forest, as they failed to come close to a playoff place.

It’s now been confirmed that Keane is leaving Forest as he attempts to “pursue other opportunities.”

The indication is that Keane is looking for a way back into football management.

Update: since posting this article, Roy Keane’s Nottingham Forest exit has been confirmed.

Ameobi is ready to move to the City Ground as a free agent.

Last season, Ameobi was playing for Bolton Wanderers. The attacker scored four goals in 30 matches as Bolton were relegated to League One.

Alan Hutton could be next

According to the Nottingham Post, Forest could soon sign a new defender, too:

Forest are also said to close to signing another free agent in former Aston Villa right-back Alan Hutton.

The 34-year-old has spoken with other Championship clubs, including Wigan, but Forest appear to be at the front of the queue.
