Wesley Verhoek WILL NOT be joining Forest after the Dutchman's proposed move to The City Ground collapsed today.
Steve McClaren seemed sure that he would land the winger however he has had second thoughts on a move to England and has returned to ADO Den Haag, with their official website releasing this statement: 'after one day in England, Wesley Verhoek has decided that Nottingham Forest was not the adventure he thought it would be.
'He has given up on a foreign move and is hoping to stay in Holland, preferably with ADO Den Haag.
'After spending the last seven years with the club, his ties to the club are stronger than he first thought.
'The club is set to hold further discussions with him about his current situation and the future.'
The 26-year-old was thought to be 'keen' on a move overseas but has had a change of heart, which has left Mark Arthur disappointed, as he told the official website.
Although with a player not wanting a move there is little that could have been done, the plus that Arthur took was that the deal did not go through before his change of heart: 'both ADO Den Haag and ourselves are disappointed but we have no alternative but to respect Wesley's decision.
'Wesley is very close to his family and at least has made it clear now that he's not prepared to leave them and move to England.
'We would have had an even bigger problem had the transfer been finalised and he then concluded he could not leave Holland.
'He told us that although everything about the club was in his opinion fantastic, he already felt homesick and didn't think it was fair to the club or himself to proceed with the agreement.
'It's disappointing because we had agreed a deal with all parties concerned - the player, his agent and ADO Den Haag - in Amsterdam last Friday.
'I feel great sympathy for ADO Den Haag, who were expecting to receive a substantial transfer fee for the player and had also, we understand, already made a move in the transfer market to replace him.'
Many will, I suspect, not be surprised at this news?
