On Wednesday, Sky Deutschland’s Florian Plettenberg published a video of Nottingham Forest’s Orel Mangala in a hotel lobby in Germany, waiting to travel to seal a move to Lyon.

He stated the Ligue 1 side have agreed a deal with the Tricky Trees for €35m plus €5m bonuses and that the Premier League side were sorting out an important contract detail with the 25-year-old.

This detail between Nottingham Forest and the midfielder has been sorted out, according to journalist Sacha Tavolieri.

He took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to claim the Belgium international has ‘resolved the contractual issue’ with Nuno Espírito Santo’s side. Mangala travelled to France and will undergo medical tests with Lyon on Thursday morning.

Tavolieri states the French club will sign the Nottingham Forest player on a €10m paid loan with an option to buy, instead of a permanent transfer. He adds that if the purchase option is exercised, he’ll sign a deal until 2028 at Lyon.

This is backed up L’Equipe, who state Lyon reached an agreement with Nottingham Forest on Wednesday evening to sign Mangala on a loan deal with a non-mandatory purchase option.

It’s claimed the loan fee is €10m paid and the buying option set at €15m.
