WESLEY Verhoek’s move to Nottingham Forest has collapsed at the 11th hour after the player told the club he was not prepared to leave Holland.
Ahead of flying out for a medical with the Championship club, the ADO Den Haag winger said he felt homesick and pulled out.
Forest Chief Executive Mark Arthur said: “Both ADO Den Haag and ourselves are disappointed but we have no alternative but to respect Wesley’s decision.
“Wesley is very close to his family and at least has made it clear now that he’s not prepared to leave them and move to England.
“We would have had an even bigger problem had the transfer been finalised and he then concluded he could not leave Holland.
“He told us that although everything about the club was in his opinion fantastic he already felt homesick and didn’t think it was fair to the club or himself to proceed with the agreement.”
