Nottingham Forest flop Apostolos Vellios set to become highest paid player at new club

27-year-old Greek striker, Apostolos Vellios is on his way out of the city ground.

The forward did not have anything to do with Forest’s 2018/19 season, being sent out on loan to Belgian side, Waasland-Beveren. It is also looking very unlikely that he will be apart of Martin O’Neill’s plans for the upcoming season.

Martin O’Neill’s main goal for the reds is to bring them back to the promise land, The Premier League. The Northern Irish manager does not believe Vellios has the talent required to bring Forest back up the first division.

With the likes of Lewis Grabban, Karim Ansarifard and Daryl Murphy, it doesn’t look good for the Greek’s future at the City Ground.

It is ever looking closer that Athens-based Greek team, Atromitos will snatch Vellios up on a 2-year-deal, and in the process making him the highest paid player in the team.

Should he complete his move to the Superleague club, he will be the second Nottingham Forest player to move to Greece in this month, after Hillal Soudani completed his move to Olympiacos.

It will be a fresh start for Vellios, a deal in which both parties are happy.
