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.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Nottingham Forest will pay Bayern Munich €10 million for Richards and the Bavarians will also maintain a 15% sell-on fee should Nottingham Forest eventually sell the left-back:

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidžić thanked Richards for his time in Germany: “It was Omar’s wish that we allow him to join Nottingham Forest. He sees the opportunity to become a first-team regular at a Premier League club in his home country. Forest are getting a very good player and a lovely guy, who will forge ahead. We wish him all the best.”
Richards posted this farewell message on his Instagram account as well:
