Nottingham Forest selling goalkeeper Brice Samba to Lens

Nottingham Forest are selling goalkeeper Brice Samba to Lens.

Samba asked to be sold at the end of last season, despite helping Forest win promotion to the Premier League.

He is now on his way to Lens for £4m.

Samba will now arrive in France ahead of a medical at Lens, and is set to put pen to paper over a five-year deal at the Artois club.

He was one of Lens manager Franck Haise's priorities this window, with current No 1 Jean-Louis Leca, 36, entering the final year of his contract, and young Venezuelan stopper Wuilker Farinez expected to depart.
