Apostolos Vellios has an uncertain future at Nottingham Forest after being loaned out to Waasland-Beveren last summer due to a lack of playing time. The 27-year-old has racked up 45 games in all competitions since joining from Iraklis in 2016, but 60% of his appearances have come from the bench and he’s been substituted in 20% of them.
Vellios has made only four Championship starts since December 2016 and doesn’t appear to be fearing any better on loan in Belgium. The Greek international has scoring only four goals in 16 Jupiler Pro League games this season and has started only one game since early-November. He’s fallen out of favour at the Freethiel Stadion, and Sport Magazine revealed Waasland-Beveren are regretting having signed him.
Sport Witness have also revealed Vellios has been dropped from the matchday squad in recent weeks despite being fit and available to play. He’s out of favour on loan and with his parent club which could mean Forest put him up for sale when the season comes to a close. With Lewis Grabban, Daryl Murphy and even Karim Ansarifard ahead of him in the pecking order at the City Ground, Vellios has no future in the Midlands.
