Forest are thought to be closing on a deal for the Dutchman, with the 24-year-old expected to arrive in Nottingham to undergo a medical on Monday. The winger is also being chased by top clubs in Holland, but has stated he would prefer a move abroad.

Ishmael Miller The 24-year-old striker, who has been at The Hawthorns for four years, is booked in for a medical at the City Ground tomorrow. Ishmael looks like he'll go to Nottingham Forest, said the Baggies boss. He's got a medical there tomorrow and he's going to meet up with Steve McClaren.

Keanu Marsh-Brown will complete a year long loan from Fulham to the City Ground this week. The youngster is a skilful player who can operate anywhere down the right channel. He enjoyed a successful period last season with MK Dons in League 1.

Apparently Forest have put a 500k bid in for Tamas Priskin who has been shown the door by Ipswich and Swansea have shown interest after he enjoyed a loan spell there last season.

Swansea City are no longer chasing Lee Camp after having 3 bids rejected by the reds and are set to sign Michel Vorm from FC Utrecht for a 1.6m fee which has been agreed with the both clubs.

Things are looking good for Forest and hopefully we can build a strong team and again challenge for promotion

Believable16 Unbelievable2

Those getting excited about Miller coming to Forest are WBA supporters right??. With due respect to the guy, he scored 9 goals in 2008/09, WBA promotion year, and wacked in a massive 1 goal in 14 appearances for QPR last year...the 20 goal a season top striker we need...not based on that evidence If he signs, which appears to be likely, I hope to be eating humble pie come May 2012 Trust me I'd rather being doing that than saying 'told you so' with Forest doing the Championship rounds once again in 2012/13

Agree0 Disagree0

I am with the responder to the original post Miller is not and never will be a 20 + goal a season player (please prove me wrong) Verhoek is not coming to Forest why would he? Rangers are still in Europe if that is his other option, Forest will get Loanees from Man Utd, it will be Macheda and a couple of other reserves.

Agree0 Disagree0

Verhoek is having a medical at Forest today and yet you still think he will sign for Rangers??

Agree0 Disagree0

Our strikers need someone to link up with, hopefully miller is that player

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry your last comment is tosh... Verhoek is coming, if you read anything on Twitter last night he has stated that he is coming to Forest.
Miller may not get the 20 goals we need, but will give us strength plus is loads better than Goldie....
Macheda from Man Utd - YOU ARE DREAMING SON

Agree0 Disagree0

He is in Nottingham to speak to steve mc today. It's on the official site. Get in Coyr

Agree0 Disagree0

He sure is coming to NOTTINGHAM FOREST COYR

McGugan to sign for WBA as part of the deal to bring Miller to Forest, it is thought to be a straight swap deal , but likely that Forest will also pay an additional 500K to secure the services of WBA prolific? scorer

Believable5 Unbelievable22

500k AND McGugan, don't talk wet

Agree0 Disagree0

Two things wrong with this rumour, mcgugan is worth about 3 or 4 millers; oh and any description of miller as a prolific scorer is very generous

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry the rumour was incorrect, so why oh why do we all ready this crap and get our hopes up on a daily basis COYR

Agree0 Disagree0

Den Haag have just accepted a 2.2 million bid from Rangers. Looks like reports from Holland were premature and that he'll move to Scotland now. Source:Ado Den Haag website

Believable6 Unbelievable21

No it doesn't

Agree0 Disagree0

It doesn't say anything on the ado den haag website about verhoek having a 2.2 million bid from rangers accepted.

Agree0 Disagree0

You are the rangers fan that posted this silly rumour on the rangers rumour page ya silly wee man

Agree0 Disagree0

I said the source is an Ado Den Haag website not the Official Club website thanks. I'm a Forest fan, so why would I contemplate going onto the Rangers website and posting the same on there? All I can suggest is we have to wait and see where Verhoek ends up.

Agree0 Disagree0

If its a straight choice between rangers and the reds, especially as the former have dive bombed in europe at the first hurdle, it has to be a move to the City Ground

Agree0 Disagree0

You were doing fine til the bit where it said "2.2m" and "Rangers" in the same sentence.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh I've heard same thing ssn reporting medical tommorow but word is it's miller from WBA having medical...rangers representitives apparently beat us with last minute bid ....

Agree0 Disagree0

Listen mate what do u lot win nothing never do never will weve just had a bid of 4 million for a defender accepted so 2.2 mill isnt that much?

Agree0 Disagree0

Can Verhoek also pay as a striker

Believable7 Unbelievable6

Think so.might be able to play left back aswell lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Rangers going to match the Forrest bid a think he will go ta rangers

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah and on either wing

Agree0 Disagree0

He has told ADO fans he is off to Nottingham. Thanks S Mc for sealing the deal AGAIN

Agree0 Disagree0

Think Rangers will sign him to be honest if they match or outbid us. Verhoek said himself that we are a good club, but Rangers are a dream club.

As I said earlier, Verhoek DONE.

Now watch out for outgoings. The Lord will smile on us and McGoldrick will be going out

Unfortunately it looks like a loan.

Pride of Nottingham. 1 upmanship on Ablock since May 2011

Believable7 Unbelievable3

Goldie out on loan? just make sure whoever takes him pays 100% of his wages and promises to play him against us lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Goldie needs to stay as he has never played in his best position off the striker. He had the best strike rate at Forest last year. We need two players for each position and Googy will not stay focussed all season

Agree0 Disagree0

From two different very reliable source's next week verhoek, miller and a loan signing all coming in.

Believable11 Unbelievable3

Why do people keep posting these rumours, after yesterday's performance why would anyone want to come to Forest? COYR

Jesus, ONE bad performance which we DIDNT lose, and you become a old miser. incase you hadnt noticed forest havent won the opener for like the last 6 years, so lets not have a fit yet, hmm?

mc goldrick going to sheff wed on loan

Believable13 Unbelievable5

Hope so

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd love this to be true. Just not good enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

Haha yeah of all the rumours on this page I want this to be true

Agree0 Disagree0

Really :/

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm happy to drive him up there

Agree0 Disagree0

Please dont tease

Agree0 Disagree0

Is this right, please i hope so, but i was also told we were paying Sheff wed to take him off us lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Good news if true, even Dele Adebola was better than him

Agree0 Disagree0

I love is swagger

Agree0 Disagree0

You lot are a disgrace to the club, insulting your own players, what a joke, you call yourselfs fans

Agree0 Disagree0

If true, then good. but not because i think he's crap like the 'fans' above. but the lad needs some confidence, he has never really foud his feet at nffc

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh i hope this is true man he useless

Agree0 Disagree0

Mcgoaldrought? Cant he go to derby instead?

Agree0 Disagree0

I am a Forest fan, i never say we can't win. In fact before the chelsea match under calderwood where we played a 4-5-1 with tyson upfront, I bet 10 on us to win against a friend. However to the person who said you'd drive him there, no you don't, i'm taking him

Agree0 Disagree0

Why r they a disgrace cos u dont agree with them

Agree0 Disagree0

Forest fans, not all, seem to single certain players out for criticism. McGoldrick is the lucky beneficiary of the fans scorn.

There were other poor performers, the whole teams performance could easily be described at poor.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh pulleeeaze be true oh I would actually start up a fund to pay his wages just to keep him off the field And there would be a queue to drive him there And in reply to the other post calling us fans We are all fans that's why we care and don't want crap players in the garibaldi red shirt and he's top of that crap list Take off ya red coloured glasses and see what everyone else is seeing an average Div 1-2 player, imagine being promoted and taking that dope with us ? Lmfao it doesn't bare thinking about does it ?

Agree0 Disagree0

McGoaldrought is crap
Simply not good enough for the Championship.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not disgraceful, it's true, he is woeful.

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant we get Mego to pay some dosh for him so he can go permenently...I'd have thought such an ineffectual player was rite up Garys street maybe we can get him to cough up 500k

Agree0 Disagree0

McGoldrick was a speculative buy when BD decided that collecting forwards was the way to achieve promotion to the Promised Land. Sadly, it didn't work out and BD realised that - McGoldrick only really came to the fore after Dex got injured. If he needs to move away, on loan or permanent, to kick start his career then fair enough - let him go gracefully. No need to insult the bloke, I'm sure he would have been delighted to have been a rip roaring success for us and we would have loved him if he had of been. The facts tell us it hasn't worked out so far but strange he gets a start ahead of Garner if he's just about to leave?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2011 12:10:57
keanu marsh brown will be confirmed on Monday as a loan signing. He was being shown around the ground on Friday. COYR

Believable9 Unbelievable5

All very well but what about a striker

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2011 10:36:12
Mark Arthur is in Holland as I type finalising the Verhoek deal. Checked with my friend at EMA.

Also, 100% we are signing Miller AND Matavz. We're splashing out Ǩ7m this week. Hopefully that will shut a few up and shoot us up to the prem

Ed, I know you know this as well. My mate Keith knows you and said you told him you know when he said that he knows.

The ED is ITK {Ed001's Note - I guess you must mean a different ed.........}

Believable6 Unbelievable6

Hope this is true, mate lives in Holland and watches the Dutch lad quite often, he is a talent.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bullocks

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope this is true but i believe it it was clear on sat we need a few quality players and fast if we dont sign atleast 2 more player we will finish mid table

Agree0 Disagree0

Okay, but how do you know all this? what job does your friend do at east midlands? it's alright saying this sort of thing but you've got to back it up

Agree0 Disagree0

For fricks sake, how many times? WE ARE NOT SIGNING MATAVZ. HE IS VALUED AT ?10m.

Agree0 Disagree0

We may sign Miller, we may sign Verhoek, but Matavz no chance. Stop spreading poor rumours.

We need a centre forward who can score 20+ goals. One got injured yesterday and the other still plays for Reading.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2011 11:11:03
Forest have just upped there bid for miller to 1.6 million. From what I saw yesterday getting a player like him has never been such an important thing

Also in talks - mama birame diouf, gui assulin.

Believable6 Unbelievable7

Your right about the 1.6m bid..

Assulin however hasnt been contacted by Forest, complete rumour.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2011 01:08:33
Wesley Verhoek: Now in talks with Forest over a deal. £1.75m bid.

Ishmael Miller: £1.3m bid rejected. Forest to improve their offer to around £1.6m while negotiations continue with the player who currently earns £23k at WB.

Andrew Driver: English born Scottish winger. Back up if Verhoek deal fails to materialise. Deal could be worth upto £1m

Guidetti & Assulin were rumours. Although Assulin would be an incredible player for us, sadly not true.

COYR

Believable8 Unbelievable5

Funny that seen as our last bid was 2 mil the bids dont go down to get a player west brom accepted bid for 2 mill its just up to forest to nagotiate

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought a fee was agreed for miller on thursday ? we will keep messing about and then someone else will come in and take him anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

How can we be talking to miller if a fee hasn't been agreed. I call BS

Agree0 Disagree0

Who said a 2m bid was accepted? nothing official from the club...

A club can be in talks with a player over a contract with the parent clubs permission while in negotiations with the club over a fee.

2m was never bid or accepted.

Forest have increased their bid to 1.6m. West Brom want the player of their wage bill.

Agree0 Disagree0

The bid for wesley verhoek is for 1.7 euros

Agree0 Disagree0

If u listen to mcclaren he said the bid was not 2 mill they made a enquiry and are set to bid jesus do u lot no anything source im the club captain at forest

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2011 00:29:37
This is not a rumour it fact I live on the same road as an ex forest player ( the one that went to play for Celtic ) now this will be confirmed early next week Nottingham forest will sell Lewis mc to WBA as part of a deal that will bring in miller and shorey plus £2.5 mil then forest will put that money towards the lad from holland and the sell Joe garner to sheff weds for 650k

Believable11 Unbelievable17

Hell of a commute for him isn't it, still in Nottingham? What's he do stick up posters 'Forest secrets ' on the lamp posts? Don't take us for idiots

Agree0 Disagree0

We dont need to sell, we have the money its just about quality

Agree0 Disagree0

Amazing. Steve McLaren said earlier on Radio Nottingham that we hadn't made a bid for Miller and in the space of a few hours, not only is he coming but it's in a deal involving 2 players. And is then essential in getting "the lad from Holland". Thank goodness players that aren't employed by Forest anymore have been told all of this.

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't believe you expect people to believe this. this has got to be a joke

Agree0 Disagree0

If this was true which i doubt, would take the deal, get it done..

Agree0 Disagree0

Go and get some friends rather then puttin stupid rumours on here for people to talk to you ive just been on the site and the press talk hasent been updated since 5th so where u gettin this from?

Agree0 Disagree0

Great deal if true snap their hands off. Hate to see Lewis go but for the good of the team...LB and a striker?

Agree0 Disagree0

If your on about commons then you are talking bull he is engaged to my cousin and knows nothing about transfers at forest so stop with the stupid comments

Agree0 Disagree0

Garner out for 650k would be good business - he's NOT good enough for us..the rest is cr*p..if mcgugan goes we would have zero creative players

Agree0 Disagree0

I just hope its true

Agree0 Disagree0

Mark my words you heard it here first also the ex player wasnt fat boy who told me it was kw and he is very much still friends with all the forest players

Agree0 Disagree0
