Wayne Routledge is in advanced talks with Forest favouring the 'ambitious' Forest rather than a lower Prem offer he's received, which isn't QPR.

Giles Barnes has been offered a contract but Barnes feels he can get a 'better deal'
a he's stalling the medical which was penciled in for Monday.

Greening also in initial talks but might take a while to finalise. Due to holidays and other offers on the table that might inflate.

No word on Maynard.

NOTTINGHAM Forest will find out today whether they have been successful in bringing Colin Calderwood back to the club, confirmed Steve McClaren this morning.

The Reds manager revealed that Forest expect a decision today, as they look to bring the former City Ground boss back to the club as McClaren's assistant.

The major stumbling block will be whether his current club, Hibernian, are willing to release him from his contract to return to Nottingham for a second spell.

"I have been prioritising trying to put my staff together and people know that we have been trying to bring Colin Calderwood back to the club, " said McClaren.

"That will be resolved today, hopefully. We are one or two people short at the moment and I will be looking at that.

"There is still a long way to go. Everyone knows the qualities he will bring, which is why we are trying to get him here.

"But we can talk about that more when it is done and dusted."

Giles Barnes done deal one year, medical today
Calderwood rumour is tosh, they were discussing a player who Macs not interested in now. Cooper is in talks about Asst tho
Maynard to sign Monday, choosing Forest over Leicester as is guaranteed first team football with us and enticed by Maclaren.
1 Prem season loan that will wow the fans is nearly done.
Still in talks about Bertrand, he wants top join us but Chelsea rather him go to prem on loan, also still got Shorey in pipeline and dutch target for LB too
Whittingham in talks nothing agreed as yet but looking good
Moussi Staying
Earnie is staying to see out his career.

This comes from an agent, has been telling me to hold on for a week or so before finally giving this lot up, reckons will all be confrimed anyway by this time next week at latest and some on Monday.

Guy moussi is a man who i've met on numerous occasions and each time he seems genuinely happy here in nottingham, this and the fact that a source in the city ground has told me he is to sign a new 30k a year deal, make me think he will re-sign

Fred.


30k a YEAR? On big money then?

Stan Collymoore is to join Steve McClaren as a coach at Nottingham Forest FC. Also still very high on the radar is Colin Calderwood. The deal is said to be in good process.
Players coming in Very few i am afraid! But ! Not to worry because the few players joining will be Peter Whittingham, Nicky Maynard, Paul Konchesky and Lee Bowyer. Possibles also from Holland, Germany and Japan?
