Despite reports to the contrary, English Championship club Nottingham Forest insist they have yet to finalize a deal for American forward Robbie Findley.

The former Real Salt Lake man has been linked with a number of clubs however a move to Forest gained serious steam after Wolves head coach Mick McCarthy mentioned that his club had lost out to the two-time Champions League winners for Findley's services.

When pressed as to whether or not a contract had been finalized for the Phoenix, Arizona native, Forest indicated that at this moment, no agreement has been completed.

"As a club we're not in a position to comment with regard to Robbie – he certainly hasn't completed a move to Forest yet," Nottingham Forest Media Director Fraser Nicholson told YA. "Mick McCarthy's comments suggest a deal has been completed but that's not the case, yet.

Findley, a dual citizen of both the US and Trinidad and Tobago, spent three and a half seasons at Real Salt Lake where he appeared in 91 matches and scored 29 goals.

I don't see why everyone is taking this as an opportunity to jump all over Findley. Dude is trying to take his game to the next level. I'm pretty sure everyone who follows this site regularly is aware of his struggles with the national team. Say what you will (and I definitely have in the past), but hes definitely fast enough to run with guys in Europe. Lest we forget he was terrorizing MLS in 2009...I say let him take his chance and good for him. If anything this will probably lead to him getting less call ups in the short term anyways because he'll miss out on camps where Bradley takes a look at predominantly MLS based players. His game only stands to improve from this move.

I didn't know that English Championship teams were in the market for speedy players with absolutely no skill.

If he even qualifies for a work permit, this will play out exactly like Eddie Johnson except at a lower level.
