Forest are in talks to sign oumare tounkara a striker from Sunderland

Believable2 Unbelievable14

Less than impressive goal return

Agree0 Disagree0

If he does come I still think we need someone else

Agree0 Disagree0

After him on loan not a permanent signing

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard something from a very reliable source that may interest my fellow forest fans.
We are going to have two or three more players by the start of next week.

Tim Matavz- must admit I thought this was just a rumour but we have spoke to him and due to his small wages at Groningen we are able to get him. Price around 2.5million.

David Murphy- he isn't prepared to sit for another season on the birmingham bench. Happy to rejoin mcclaren, agreed fee of 800k.

Wayne Routledge- This one is still in the balance he has narrowed his choices down to us and Swansea but is believed to prefer a move to us and we can promise him more games.

Believable12 Unbelievable9

Really want these to be true and routledge to sign as well

Agree0 Disagree0

Seems very believable. Better than alot rubbish that gets posted & rehashed on here

Agree0 Disagree0

Also just thought Id mention the following players are not targets:
Goodwillie, Fuller, Tounkara, Shorey.
Also, we have rejected the chance to get George boateng and holes barnes.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah Id love this to be true, think we'd be a real force. Still think we lack a quality finisher. Like the last couple of times we've been promoted collymore/roy and hooijdonk/Campbell. Makes all difference at this level.

Agree0 Disagree0

Also seems that Jordan Rhodes could be coming in from Huddersfield. But Millwall are favourites to get him

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll believe it all, when it's the OS.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Findley could be the finisher as he impressed in training and looks good on all videos i have seen

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 22:02:03
adam hammill shorey goodwillie all set to sign

Believable3 Unbelievable12

Whats this I read about Camp snubbing a new deal at the City Ground and therefore club considering offer from Swansea, also heard whisper bout West Brom...surely we need to hang onto him, if we get promoted next time he's prob gonna sign a new contract...he;s pivatol...commands the area motivates the team...Smithie is a very pale refl4ction Im afraid...CAMP MUST STAY

Believable5 Unbelievable13

CAMP MUST STAY

Agree0 Disagree0

What a loud of cob's - they'll never get camp for less than 5 million.

Agree0 Disagree0

He can "snub a new deal" if he wants but he's still under contract for the remainder of the season. And I doubt the club would be desperate to renew his contract until January. Got any better stories?

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought Camp was under contract until june 2013

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish. He is under contract until 2013.

Agree0 Disagree0

This is clearly either rubbish, or swansea trying to tap Camp up. If you want him Swansea make a decent offer.

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of made up sheep dip
campy signed a 3 year deal last season ,
what a sad lonley sheep

Agree0 Disagree0

Just got back from the City Ground.

Spoke to Greening and he signed my boys autograph book.

I told him he'd be seeing a lot of me as I hang around the ground/club/car park quite a bit.

He seemed really nice.

Expect Routledge to sign tomorrow despite Swansea's increased offer and best of all NED will return as assistant manager before the weekend.

Yippee

Person that put this Lee camp is not on twitter it's a fake

Believable5 Unbelievable14

Greening and moussi completed, expect one of the Chelsea left backs on loan, if shorey deal cannot be done. routledge goodwillie And Leon best to sign this week, have just been told from my friend at nep that we will bid for Anton Ferdinand as he has become available- bham and west ham also interested. Fantastic replacement for Wilson. Wes definitely needs competition for his place.

Believable13 Unbelievable4

Shorey aint interested so why keep dragging that one on pal

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope its Ashley Cole

Agree0 Disagree0

Shorey didnt say he wasnt interested he said that he hasnt been officially approached by Forest dont criticise people if you havent read the article properly

Agree0 Disagree0

Wes is the best defender we got dont you mean comp for chambo...??

Agree0 Disagree0

'hope its ashley cole'

me too mate, he'd do i job i think maybe we should get drogba in too, only until dex is back of course

Agree0 Disagree0

H muppet shorey will be signing friday, how silly you look now,

Agree0 Disagree0

Wes is a donkey mate - distrubution is shocking very similar to titus brammble - chambers is number 1 hence why bids from premiership coming in for him, start watching forest every week mate

Agree0 Disagree0

I hate ashley cole so just as well its not gonna be him

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed chambers is deffo number 1, even if we don't sign anyone it will be wes under pressure from lascelles this season. He better not pick up any injuries, as he might struggle to get his place back, like Wilson last year.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

Seen it with my own eyes hop he not going

Agree0 Disagree0

All the players flew back today... not just camp

Agree0 Disagree0

That's a fake account on Twitter

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not going anywhere. Macca already said we aren't selling. If he were he could do better then WBA

Agree0 Disagree0

Its because he got an ankle injury against spurs read match report

I hope SM includes joe garner in his plans. He is a good striker, and has in my eyes has been unfairly treated.

on another note, giles barnes, bolo zenden(will play LB as he played at barca) and darl murphy will be forest players by the end of the window.

robin----red

Believable7 Unbelievable8

Zenden? Left-back at 34?

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd rather see Lynch play left back

Agree0 Disagree0

BARNESNOT HAPPENING

Lynch is derby standard we need a lb

Agree0 Disagree0

We def need a LB but not Zenden at his age.

Jay Bothroyd just posted that he hopes Wayne Routledge will be signing for QPR on twitter.

Believable3 Unbelievable7

Neil Warnock has said he will not be spending any more money after the signing of dj Campbell. So unless he gets routledge on free this is not gonna happen. Forest, Swansea or Leicester will be his destination

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would he sign for them when he turned down a contract earlier

Agree0 Disagree0

And? im sure that one tweet wont decide routledges future. Some people are obsessed with what people say on twitter

Agree0 Disagree0

Think he was joking. Besides, QPR are in enough trouble as it is, and surely he'd have gone to QPR weeks ago if he and them wanted to...

Agree0 Disagree0

He has already turned qpr down you fool

moussi has signed a new three year contract at forest

Sourse transfer centre

Believable7 Unbelievable8

Guy Moussi has agreed a new deal to stay at Nottingham Forest.
Moussi was expected to leave Forest this summer following the expiry of his contract.
New Forest boss Steve McClaren admitted keeping Moussi on a new deal was one of his main priorities after taking charge at the City Ground and it appears he has convinced the midfield powerhouse to stay put.
A number of clubs were thought to be keen on signing Moussi, but the Frenchman is believed to have agreed a three-year deal.
The news will come as a major boost to McClaren as he prepares for the new season with the club yet to make significant progress in this summer's transfer window.

Transfer Centre

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes just checked on ssn and they are saying it true. Only another 7 to 8 players to go

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont think moussi should of signed because steve wont play two holding midfielders and cant see greening on the bench

Agree0 Disagree0

Laughable to suggest Cohen is a makeweight in a 600k deal.... don't think so somehow.

Agree0 Disagree0

Greening the makeweight plus some cash

Why even make this rubbish up? greening isnt a makeweight, neither is cohen. greening signed for 600k. jol saw him as surplus. cohen aint going anywhere. now jog on.

Would keano really take a step down to assistant...bit too headstrong i think

Julio Arca is talking to Forest......Matt Derbyshire also a free transfer option. Forest have talked to Sol Campbell but wage demands too high....Anthony Gardner is next on list

Believable12 Unbelievable9

If Matt Derbyshire were free I would go and pick him up myself, a quality player who is too good for the championship but would love him at the reds.

Agree0 Disagree0

Arca? surprise but id definitely take him

Agree0 Disagree0

You've just read through a list of free agents Pinocchio.

Agree0 Disagree0

IS everyone as tired as me of all of these rumours that are on here isn't time that Forest started to replace the players that have left, with at least some bodies, all we need is a couple of injuries and our season and our expectations will be over before the end of August.

Agree0 Disagree0

Arca will be going to Wigan. We do not need him and he is too short to play left back

Agree0 Disagree0

Same height as Shorey and played left back throughout career

Agree0 Disagree0

What on earth is going on....I am becoming more and more convinced that this website is run by anti-forest supporters (Derby Fans) who are inent on winding us up. Guess what its working, I am getting to the stage where I think nobody will sign and SM will walk out very soon

Why would we want players who can sing?

Agree0 Disagree0

Well as my mate Tim pointed out surely the sky/bbc vans that were there for the Friday 10am/3pm/4pm press conference(s) which sadly never happened, are still there?

Nicky Shorey has made a statement confirming no interest from Forest and that he wants to make the most of what's left of his career in the premiership, Here we go again

Believable15 Unbelievable3

I can verify this. NS has gone on record and said the rumour was simply paper talk and there was never any foundation. It could be a smoke screen as Forest like to deal in private - but then again, perhaps that is just me being an optimist and giving Marthur way too much credit.

Agree0 Disagree0

And whereabouts did he make this statement? to you down the pub? or do you actually have a source so we can check it out for ourselves?

Agree0 Disagree0

So what was roy hodgson talking about the other day ? someone is talking porkies somewhere

Agree0 Disagree0

Didnt expect us to sign him anyway to be honest.

Agree0 Disagree0

What he actaully said was that he hasnt been directly contacted by Forest, which of course he wouldnt be as that would be tapping up a player and we would have to get permission to talk to him from WBA after agreeing a fee ne never mentions that he is definitely staying in the interview just that he has not had any contact from Forest.

Agree0 Disagree0

So wot ur saying we haven't even spoke 2 shorey, why r they dragging there arses it's a shambles
