FC Bayern have agreed to the transfer of 24-year-old Omar Richards to English Premier League club Nottingham Forest. The full-back joined the German record champions last summer on a free transfer from Reading in England’s second tier.

FC Bayern board member for sport Hasan Salihamidžić: “It was Omar’s wish that we allow him to join Nottingham Forest.
