Out of favour Nottingham Forest striker Lars Veldwijk is set to leave the club this summer with a possible move to The Netherlands or China on the horizon according to the Nottingham Post.

The 24 year old signed for the Midlands club from Dutch club Excelsior back in summer 2014 in a deal worth up to £1 million but the player has been a huge flop at The City Ground and finally looks set to end his Nottingham Forest misery this summer.

The striker has enjoyed a season long loan in the Eredivisie with PEC Zwolle and the Dutch club are set to hold talks with Nottingham Forest in the coming weeks in a bid to secure the player’s services on a permanent basis. It is understood that a club in China are also interested in signing Veldwijk.

After netting 30 goals in 38 appearances at former club Excelsior, the Dutchman has settled back into life in his homeland well and has scored 13 goals in 31 appearances for PEC Zwolle this season. Veldwijk is said to want to stay in The Netherlands and would like to join PEC Zwolle on a permanent basis.

The striker is under contract at The City Ground until summer 2017 therefore Nottingham Forest could recuperate some of their losses by selling the player this summer.
