Nottingham Forest expected to complete the signing of Lewis O’Brien in the next 48 hours… with the Huddersfield midfielder to become Steve Cooper’s EIGHTH new arrival in a busy summer at the City Ground

  • Lewis O’Brien played against Forest in the Championship play-off final in May
  • Steve Cooper is now set to secure the signature of the Huddersfield midfielder
  • O’Brien, 23, has been a regular for the Terriers throughout the last three seasons
  • Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis is making his ambition clear this summer

Nottingham Forest are expected to complete the signing of Huddersfield midfielder Lewis O’Brien in the next 48 hours. 

The 23-year-old will become Steve Cooper’s eighth signing of the summer with more set to arrive in the coming weeks as owner Evangelos Marinakis makes his ambition clear following the club’s return to the Premier League. 

O’Brien lined up against Forest in the Championship play-off final in May and the Reds have had a busy summer since their victory at Wembley.

Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey became the latest new face at the City Ground on Friday morning, following the arrivals of record signing Taiwo Awoniyi, Dean Henderson, Giulian Biancone, Moussa Niakhate, Omar Richards and Neco Williams. 

The Reds have already spent around £60million in the transfer market, but O’Brien is not expected to cost as much as the £10million fee previously reported. 

Once he is through the door, Forest will turn their attentions to bringing in another central midfielder as well as a new striker after Lewis Grabban turned down a new contract at the club.

Apart from a season on loan at Bradford City, O’Brien has spent his whole career at Huddersfield after joining the club at the age of 11. 

He has been a regular in midfield for the last three seasons and captained the side on multiple occasions. 

Last season, the 23-year-old made 50 appearances in all competitions, contributing three goals and three assists.
