Leicester are ready to put a £1 million bid for Morgan. This would be bad news, but would be enough for a cheap defender in his place.

West ham are after McGugan - This is brilliant news if true as McGugan has been dreadful this season gets some cash so no need to sell wes and can maybe get new faces in. Would also allow to offer new contracts to excisting players

Believable11 Unbelievable2

If they offer anywhere around 2m we should take it. He's a good player but inconsistent and hopefully would mean Magic restored to the side if he moves.

Agree6 Disagree0

How much do you think they will pay for him.1 player sold won't allow 5 new 3 year contract.It's Mcgugan not Messi.!!

Agree1 Disagree2

Actually it will if u think about it. chambers, wes and ando are all on contracts as it is so we can obviously afford to pay them at the moment. the issue is giving them a raise, an extra grand a week or whatever. so if mcgugan's on 8 grand a week say, u take 3 grand off his contract and distribute it evenly between the other 3. then u put the remaining 5 into other things. simples

Agree1 Disagree2

Why would we want to offer contracts to our players whose contracts are running down?

lynch has been decent but the rest have been appalling.

Agree2 Disagree0

Chambers, anderson and morgan don't deserve pay rises

Agree2 Disagree0

Hope he goes to west ham, he'll go there thinking hes the bee's, they'll go up, then in summer big sam will buy big. then he'll just be a 2 million pound upton park seat warmer

Agree0 Disagree0

SC speaking in NEP today about Raddi. Clearly something isgoing on re McGugan as he is laying path for Raddi back into team.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are looking into the possibility of signing prolific Nottingham Forest youngster Patrick Bamford. The championship club are in dire need of funds and would accept any reasonable bid. They are likely to let Bamford go for around £1.5 million.

Saw this but don't know what to make of it. Yes, we need the cash but something tells me Bamford could potentially be the answer to our problems. What dyou reckon?

Believable7 Unbelievable12

He's only a kid, stop putting the whole weight of the world on his shoulders.

Agree7 Disagree8

No, you made it up, clearly.

Agree8 Disagree3

Ever1s seen him for 3 mins and they think hes god

Agree7 Disagree5

If this is true it's ridiculous. We've got a misfiring squad, but young hungry players scoring goals and itching to get out on the pitch. If we start selling our future then the club really is doomed, get rid of the ones who don't want to be there for a knockdown price if we have to but keep the talented youngsters of the future. If we go down I'd rather see us go down with kids playing with pride and passion than with players who don't give a toss, who knows if we stuck Bamford up front now for the last few games in the first team what might have happened (a few goals perhaps..?!)

Agree8 Disagree2

I say give him a chance before you ship him off, scored 5 the other day for the youth team - lets face it he isnt going to do any worse than some of the strikers at the club atm

Agree7 Disagree1

Watched this kid in the 9-1 youth cup drubbing against wigan and thought he looked outstanding. Even though he scored 5 excellent goals, one being a penalty that he smashed into the top corner thought he was the most unselfish player on the pitch setting up 3 of the other goals as well. He was playing as a lone striker and after seeing his movement looks a very intelligent striker. SC gotta give him at least 20 mins so he can make an impact, no good last 3 mins of game. I would defiantly give him a chance at least he'll play with heart unlike some of the prima donna's handing in transfer requests when the club needs them the most!!

Agree7 Disagree0

Where did you read this?? link??

Agree3 Disagree0

He HAS handed in a transfer request.

Agree1 Disagree11

Same old comments and as usual no links/source to back it up.

Either put on here a link to the story or stop trying to make yourself look interesting by making things up.

Do you really think a player just coming through, is going to hand a transfer request in?? Really?? Didn't think so

Agree4 Disagree1

Sorry he is s**t and sod him if he wants to leave

Agree2 Disagree6

Who says he wants leave.get real pal he has never said that. Trust me he will be a forest legend our star stiker nxt season.but he dnt want to leave

Agree4 Disagree3

Tese people who say bamford not ready or good enough get ur head out the sand give him a chance.look at jay rodriges from burnley from the youth and wot a decent striker that y teams want him bamford cud b xactly the same.if sc gives him a good run of games.just my oppion thou

Agree1 Disagree1

He is not ready. Have you actually watched him? He needs to go out on loan as he is a rabbit in headlights at first team level. SC blocking loan as he has not signed new contract.
