Anthony Elanga isn’t expected to leave Nottingham Forest during the Premier League's mad dash to meet Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

Swedish forward Elanga has been linked with Newcastle United in recent days and Forest are in talks with the Magpies over the £35 million signing of Elliot Anderson. There is also a possibility that Greek goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos will join Newcastle as part of the Anderson deal.

But Elanga won’t leave the City Ground imminently, according to The Telegraph. The 22-year-old registered five goals and nine assists in 36 Premier League matches last term and Forest are keen to retain his services.

Anderson looks to be on his way to the City Ground and Forest are sanctioning two sales to Lyon. Orel Mangala and Moussa Niakhate are both in line to join the French club to ease Forest’s PSR concerns.

Premier League clubs are looking to balance their 2023/24 balance sheets by the close of play today to avoid any penalties next season. Points deductions for Forest and Everton sent shivers around the top flight last term and teams are desperate to steer clear of any breaches.

It isn’t imperative that deals go through today, though. As long as the deal is in the works, Premier League clubs can still file it in their 2023/24 accounts.
