11:23 – Update on the Ebecilio situation the admin error leaves Forest with one space in their squad but they will only be able to pay £5000 a week towards someone’s wages which leaves landing a signing unlikely, however if they can offload Kyle Ebecilio’s loan to another club they could open up more room for signings.
