Olivier Karekezi has been linked with a move to English Championship side Nottingham Forest.

The Rwanda skipper told Times Sport that his dream of plying his trade in England could be accomplished before the end of this month.

"I'm waiting for the [UK] visa before I can fly out to England for talks with some English clubs," said Karekezi. Though he did not name the clubs interested in his signature, sources told the paper that Nottingham Forest are one of his suitors.

The club is currently playing in the second tier of English league football, the Championship. Notts County, who are in League Two, have also been linked with the former APR striker.

Karekezi came close to joining Al-Ahly last month but the deal stalled after his Norwegian side, Ham Kam, failed to reach an agreement with the Egyptian giants.
