The Kuwaiti family looking to buy Nottingham Forest have released a statement to Sky Sports News, insisting they remain committed to the purchase of the club. Fawaz, Abdulaziz and Omar Al-Hasawi have now released a statement clarifying their situation.

"At this moment we are wholeheartedly committed to completing the purchase in the shortest possible timeframe in preparation for the forthcoming season.

"Our eyes are open to the exciting challenges ahead of us and we look forward to working with the club, staff and dedicated supporters to put the Reds back to the top of the table."

The Al-Hasawis also moved to dismiss reports that Italian agent and former QPR chairman Gianni Paladini was actively involved in their bid.

"In light of erroneous media coverage in the British press over the past weekend, we wish to state that Mr Gianni Paladini has no authority to act on behalf of the Al-Hasawi Family in connection with our purchase of Nottingham Forest. "
