In total, Dennis has played less than 800 Premier League minutes for Nottingham Forest and is yet to play for the Tricky Trees in the 2023/24 season, showing a critical lack of game time at the club.
With the 2023 AFCON on the horizon, Dennis would be desperate to improve his playing situation and earn more minutes, making a move away from Nottingham Forest a must for the forward.
Dennis to leave Nottingham Forest on loan
As most top European leagues have closed their summer transfer window, Dennis’ best option for a move is to go to Turkey, with the country’s transfer window open until September 15.
Dennis is reportedly on his way to Istanbul Basaksehir, as noted in an exclusive by transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano in a post on social media platform X.
The move for Dennis to Istanbul from Nottingham Forest is reportedly a loan without an option to buy, indicating that the Super Eagles forward will return to England after his temporary move.
