Nottingham Forest have had their full Transfer Embargo lifted by The Football League, according to BBC Sport.

The Championship club were under embargo anyway due to them breaking Financial Fair Play rules. However, a full embargo was imposed upon Forest for failing to pay a £5 million instalment to Peterborough United for summer acquisition Britt Assombalonga.

The BBC report that Forest have now paid that money to the Posh and can now register players again, as long as they adhere to their original ban.

News broke of Forest’s original ban mid-December of 2014 as they, Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers were placed under embargo. Their ban commenced on 1st January and only allowed them to sign free agents and loan players until the end of the 2014/15 season.

Forest picked up their first win since mid-January at the weekend as they beat Brighton 3-2 away at The AMEX Stadium. It was new boss, Dougie Freedman’s first win as Forest boss since he took over from former player and manager, Stuart Pearce.
