Marcus McGuane spent the first half of the campaign on loan with SC Telstar, and they were the first to seemingly confirm the player’s winter move to Nottingham Forest. They posted a right luck message on Twitter on Saturday morning.
There’s been quite a bit of speculation about the move in the last month.
The Nottingham Post wrote late on deadline day that Forest remained hopeful of completing the transfer, but they were waiting on international clearance.
Even before that, in mid-January, Telstar manager Andries Jonker told the media Marcus McGuane had an agreement over personal terms with an English club. At the time, they were still negotiating the transfer, but let Marcus McGuane stay in England while they sorted it out.
Marcus made 16 matches for Telstar in the first half of the season. He scored once and assisted three times from midfield, starting all-but-one game until mid-December.
Clearly, things weren’t working out for him, though. He dropped out of the team before their final game of the year, then spent the last month trying to get the deal to join Nottingham Forest over the line. Good luck to him with the Championship club if it happens.
