    Ariyibi back to Forest?

    According to all Nigeria Soccer (https://www.allnigeriasoccer.com/rea....php?nid=32132) Goboly is likely to end his spell at Fir Park.



    EFL Championship club Nottingham Forest have confirmed their retained and released list following the conclusion of the 2018-2019 season.

    It is looking likely that American-born winger of Nigerian parentage, Gboly Ariyibi will not be extending his stay at Scottish Premiership side Motherwell, with The Reds announcing on Monday that he's one of the first team players contracted beyond June 2019.

    The former United States U23 star has made 16 appearances for Motherwell since joining the club in the January transfer window, scoring two goals.

    His last official game for Motherwell could be against Livingston this coming Saturday, May 18.

    The 24-year-old has yet to play a competitive game for Nottingham Forest's first team but has taken in loan spells at Milton Keynes Dons and Northampton Town.

    A product of the famed Southampton Academy, Ariyibi also lists Leeds United, Tranmere Rovers and Chesterfield as his previous clubs.

    Offers something different, sorry to see him leave. With the list of players out of contract and expected to leave for pastures new, next season IMO is going to be a very testing one for our club. Bringing players in is going to be difficult as like most of the clubs in the bottom half of our league we are all chasing the same players from the English non league or free transfer players.

    The fact he's contracted there does not mean they are interested in retaining him...indeed, he looks a million miles away from being good enough for an aspiring Championship club.

    It all comes down to cash as usual so while I don't necessarily expect to see him remain with us, it would hardly be the biggest shock ever either.
