With cox in the bag and Hutchinson on the way SOD will turn his attention to signing a RM. the candidates being
Tomas Ince but blackpool are asking for lots of money
Ryan Hall who is not proven

Believable26 Unbelievable18

What have you heard on the transfer on hall ed? And what are your views on him? {Ed034's Note - nothing and would be a good signing. The only transfer that looks certain is the Hutchinson one. Moussa been offered terms and is thinking about it, but other than that, nothing. I've not long got back from Blackpool and have been there since Sunday morning, so going to have a dig tomorrow

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh well we can afford it

Agree0 Disagree0

Ah kk cheers for the reply man.. Would be very pleased with Hutchinson as he looks great prospect and highly regarded by Chelsea, hall or hammill would be my first choice winger but I guess moussa could do the job with findley as back up

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be happy with any of them including Hammill and Bennett, Ince i think will be priced out of a move as Holloway will want top dollar for him, so for me that wont be happening!

Which leaves us with Hall or Hammill or anyone else that SoD might fancy for that position, we definitely need a pacey talented winger or two at the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would welcome Hutchinson if he's anything like when Bertrand came on loan!

Hi. I put info about the money transfer to UK the night before the takeover, confirming it was being done the next day (I was the only one who got this right)
I can now confirm that Forest paid 2.4m for Cox, and 250k in agents fees. 100k has gone to Chelsea today for the loan of Sam Hutchinson. A further 1.3m is to be transferred on Monday.
Being a Forest fan, what I found exciting was a Winter budget already in place for January.Definitely 3.8m is set aside for then
Im back in UK in October and will be working directly with NFFC {Ed034's Note - What is the additional £1.3m for???

Believable21 Unbelievable21

Sorry, but if this was genuine then by disclosing this information you would give yourself away, and given that you would also be breaking confidentiality agreements that would be in place you would be in a whole heap of trouble. 1.4m to loan a Chelsea youngster - yeah right!

Agree1 Disagree0

You must be an person giving away confidential info of this nature.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed
Please do not post this type of Info as if it is believed it will not be good for our club {Ed034's Note - It's a rumours site and this is his rumour.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope you are not doing anything to compromise the club here. If so I hope you get found out and get the sack or get into trouble.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lighten up everybody! This bloke knows now't! 1.4 to loan any player is just not on.
A pleasant little flyer is all this is.

Agree0 Disagree0

So your a important man in the scenes at Forest, yet you're on here talking about something that's completely confidential.

Think through your story before you post.

Ryan Hall transfer likely to happen towards the end of the transfer window. He is in the final year of his contract and Southend are holding out for their figure.
Is he worth paying the quoted £500k for an unproven player at Championship level ?

Believable16 Unbelievable10

Apparently yes.

Agree1 Disagree0

Without a shadow of a doubt YES!

Agree0 Disagree0

Sooner pay 500k for someone to prove he is up to it and fight for a place and give 100% or get someone like hurrrrm miller ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes for me. Seen a clip on you tube. He has pace and skillfull. Well worth a punt.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think getting hall in would be completing the puzzle,, he would create so many goals for Dex and Coxy.He's a proper little handfull and could turn out to be one of the best buys in, not just for Forest but the championship as a whole as you can tell i really rate him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes he is worth the money, he will be a talent worth signing, something we have been missing for a long time!

We need wingers with pace and the ability to create goals and take players on, come on Forest get him signed!

Agree0 Disagree0

Everyone believes that jordan Rhodes is worth paying 4 million for and he's unproven at championship level!

Agree0 Disagree0

He's very quick and got 25 assists last season with Southend (Most assists in the four leagues) and scored in double figures. 500k is a good punt for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

We are targeting Jermaine Beckford and Bradley wright-Phillips currently of Charlton Athletic.

Moussa doesn't look like signing, al Mutawa has failed to get a work permit so we are appealing it.

O'Driscoll looking at Ahmed elmohamady from Sunderland who is not in martin o'neills plans. Expected to make a loan bid with a view to a permanent move next summer in
next few days.

(Moussa is apparently going on trial with Sheffield united which is why I believe he is not signing.) {Ed034's Note - I've heard he has been offered terms and it is up to him now

The Al-Hasawi family to show the financial clout with an audacious move for Blackpool winger Tom Ince {Ed034's Note - It sounds like they asked how much and that's as far as it went

Believable12 Unbelievable19

I'm not sure splashing 4 mil(what I've heard he would cost) is a good idea, maybe it would be good business for the Al-Hasawi's to keep their wealth secretive so as to avoid teams demanding top dollar for their players.

C8RED

Agree1 Disagree0

If and it's a big if, Blackpool where to release him he would be premier bound mate

Agree0 Disagree1

Not heard this. So we deffos enquired? {Ed034's Note - From what a journo has said

Agree0 Disagree0

Be surprised if they would sell to a championship rival. PL bound I would say

Agree0 Disagree1

I would pay what we paid for cox for him but thats it, anything more its not worth the money

Agree0 Disagree0

This has only came around because pb tweeted it earlier today and even he had doubts as to wether it was factual or not. He would finish off the squad nicely if true and I would seriously believe we could mount a challenge should he and Hutchinson arrive

Simon

Agree0 Disagree0

Ince is quality

Agree0 Disagree0

Need ince hutchinson wootton and hammill for top 6 finish

Agree0 Disagree0

I heard and doubted this a couple
Of weeks ago been told we were quoted 3 mil

Agree0 Disagree0

You need to speculate to accumulate. We wouldn't pay the extra for Jarvis and look how much he is worth now. I'd like to see us do some more business and then get Ince as our final transfer, so the other teams don't start hiking prices. He'll be worth 10-15m soon

Agree0 Disagree0

If he is valued at 3 million id go for him but i believer like so many other fans he is Premiership bound.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be a quality signing. Blackpool offering 2.5-3 million, not bad for such a prospect.
