New Zealand's Marko Stamenic has apparently had his transfer from Red Star Belgrade to Nottingham Forest confirmed.

Stamenic, who has made 21 international appearances for the All Whites, is apparently on a NZ$9.6 million transfer after he impressed Forest while helping Red Star, win the Serbian SuperLiga last season.


Stamenic would be joining fellow kiwi Chris Wood at Forest, however he would be unlikely to stay.

He is expected to join Olympiacos on a season-long loan, similar to other arrangements in the Evangelos Marinakis operation, with the Greek billionaire owning both clubs.

Olympiacos is a giant club of Greek football having won 47 domestic titles.

Twenty-two-year-old Stamenic is of Serbian and Samoan descent who began his career in New Zealand before moving to FC Copenhagen at the age of 18. In 2022, became the first New Zealand player for 15 years to play in the Champions League.

Only last month All Whites goalkeeper Alex Paulsen was signed from the Wellington Phoenix to EPL side, Bournemouth..
