Wolves midfielder Adlene Guedioura is poised to join Nottingham Forest on loan.

Guedioura has struggled to hold down a regular place in the Wolves side and is keen on a move away in search of regular first-team football.

The Algeria international has made just three starts in the Premier League this term and Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has granted him the chance to go out on loan.

A number of clubs were thought to be keen on landing Guedioura, but Forest have stolen a march on their rivals by agreeing a deal to take him to the City Ground.

Guedioura's arrival will come as a boost to Forest boss Steve Cotterill as he looks to steer his side clear of trouble at the wrong end of the Championship table.

Guedioura could go straight into the Forest squad for Tuesday's home clash with Burnley if he completes his move in time.

Chelsea bid £1million for Bamford & Wes Morgan 10 year spell at Forest is over according to the mail

Believable5 Unbelievable1

I think this is good business we need mOney to strengthen the team now we
Can't rely on an untried 18 year old however good he may be in the future. the 2 million for him and Wes will
Hopefully enable us to freshen up in a few areas. I like the idea of Matt Tubbs

Agree2 Disagree5

Must be true then.

Agree0 Disagree2

Matt Tubbs is totally untried at our level.He was a late developer that has scored goals at a lower level.We might as well sign him though cos we will probably benefit from him in league 1 next year.Mind you I would like rid of 1 or 2 strikers first before signing another.

Agree4 Disagree1

Tubbs has signed for Bournemouth

More bad news, chelsea have bid 1 million for patrick bamford

Believable11 Unbelievable4

If this is true forest have got to put some kind of sell on clause in the deal,but saying that they havent got a clue so i'm wasting my time

Agree3 Disagree3

Aye and he doesn't want to sign a new contract.

Tapped up he has been.

Agree8 Disagree1

Kind of guarantees he will play tomorrow night though.

Agree4 Disagree5

The Daily Mail is the worst reporting newspaper on anything relating to football.Chelsea spent 18 million on an 18 yr old striker earlier on in the season and scour the worlds best clubs for young talent.I'm sure that clubs have now heard of Bamford after 9 goals in 2 games but nobody is going to buy him based on 2 games.

Agree4 Disagree0

Like selling the family silver CHEAPLY!
Nice one MA/SC/FC

Agree3 Disagree2

NFFC aren't looking to sell (obviously). They want to offer him a new deal and try and get him first team football, probably out on loan. Chelsea's reputation for bringing through youth is poor compared to likes of Man Utd and Arsenal. It would be a mistake to move there.

Agree6 Disagree0

ONly forest could be soooo crap....the future is in youth is it? Cotterball says hes too untried to play in 1st team.....but if we let him got o Chelski...tell me please exactly wot youuth were we thinking of relying on in the future...oh perhaps the crap ones who no one else is interested in....Keep Bamford and sell or sack some of the McLaren first squad additions...things are going from bad to worse

Agree6 Disagree0

SC has got NO track record for bringing youth through and NO track record for playing nice footy.
MA/FC hang your heads in shame!

Agree5 Disagree1

What a bunch of negative idiots you he sold? No! So what if they made a bid does not mean anything...Money from Wes will be used to give him better terms and push SC into using him. Negative foold like you are why the club is in so much trouble.

Agree7 Disagree1

You really are blinded to whats going on at Forest.
The reason why the club are in such a mess has nothing to do with the fans, It's the missmanagment by ND/MA over the past 12 Years NOT the fans that pay hard earned cash week in week out irrespective of the performances on the pitch!

Agree8 Disagree3

What we all have to remember is ND has poured millions into the club, however i do agree with MA he has made so many poor decisions and seems to be happy to just hold his hands out and get paid without giving a damn about Forest...ND will soon go then MA then maybe BD can come back (IF he wants to and IF we can afford him) That only my opinion but heres hoping eh :-)

Agree4 Disagree3

I am only blinded by keyboard warriors feeding off crap posts like yours and attacking the club. Here's a novel idea...get off your backside and go and support the team..also wait until things are official before you slag off the club for selling a player they intend to keep. Sure as hell know you would not come back and apologise if wrong!

Agree4 Disagree1

Poured in millions - but it all started with the out of controll buyings from David Platt and the horrible managers after him that spent money on wrong players. Billy Davies is the only proper manager since Clark and ND is just paying heavy on his wrong investmensts in mangers and players.

Agree5 Disagree4

I agree with you it was out of control spending from the likes of Platt but he has put in so much money into the club I have to feel sorry for the guy the way everyone has turned on him...I agree with you that BD was the best manager we had for years and that was a HUGE mistake from ND to let him go.....Anyway theres so many ppl on here that know much more than me its only my personnel opinion thats all.....YOU REDS.

Agree1 Disagree1

'Of your backside and support the team'
Considering I haven't missed having a season ticket for the past 20 Years and travelling away to most then I'd say my support has been better than most so dont make comments when you dont know the individual.
You will find that the real fans like me do have a better handle on whats going on as we are much closer to the situation.
We as a club are being slowly dissmantled since the clownish appointment of McClaren and the dissruption his overpaid overrated players being allowed in has caused.
I just hope that FC is true to his word and sorts out a wage structure and hopefully weed out the real current issues such as MA and SC.

Agree0 Disagree1

Close to the issue, what a clown. If you knew anything you would know MA is going nowhere unless he decides to or ND says so. Try being a real fan and getting behind the team not posting negative made up conspiracy theories!

Agree0 Disagree0

He has turned down two improved contact offers from Forest, they need to cash in, if he is aloud to leave at the end of the season it will go to a tribunal, if that happens financially we will not recieve anymore than 500k for a player that has only made 12 mins of first team football.

Agree1 Disagree0

Looks as though we've accepted Festers bid for Wes.

Agree11 Disagree1

Not gone yet though...

Agree3 Disagree6

I heard last night.

Wes was one of the least paid players in the side, even though he was a first choice player for so long.
He sees this as the last time he can ask for big money on a contract and even though he is earning double Money at the foxes, it was still a huge decision for him.

Good luck to him and lets hope the money we have got for him, goes into getting players to help us beat the drop.

Hoppers u1

Agree8 Disagree0

Bye Wes, your still a red x

Agree7 Disagree1

"Wes was one of the least paid players in the side,"

That isn't true. He may not have been the highest but he was far from the lowest.

Agree5 Disagree4

I didn't say he was the least, bit out of the usual 16 hanging around the starting 11, he was one if the least paid.
This is the reason for him going, because he wants to put some money in the bank. This has been told to me by first one if the players other halves and now by a player himself.

Hoppers u1

Agree5 Disagree1

He was a lump of lard anyway

Agree5 Disagree10

Megson , despite all his faults, got wes on a decent diet, unlike kinnear, and he was alot fitter ever since
