Further Loan Signings Unlikely

The latest news coming out of Nottingham Forest is that any further loan signings before the window closes in 9 day are looking unlikely. We will have to make do with what we have.

And it's not for the want of trying, its just our targets are simply unavailable. Billy Davies has constantly said he doesn't want any old panic signings made, and needs quality. However quality is hard to come by at times and we simply have been unable to convince the parent clubs of many players to loan them to us.

Names mentioned have been once again Danny Guthrie, another bid for Danny Rose was also turned down, following on from the failed bid for Nigel Reo-Coker a definite bid to bolster a flagging midfield.

Clubs simply don't want to weaken their ranks whilst coming into the run in. Forest don''t want to risk loaning youngsters who are untried especially in such a tense environment,and so it looks from sources that we are very unlikely to bring anyone in, barring another spate of injuries which would force our hand.

Couple with the return in the next week or so by the likes of Moussi and the necessity somewhat recedes for bringing in temporary players.

The club will still try to bring in players, but are resigned to not getting their main targets.That doesn't rule out new targets perhaps being formulated and sought after.
