Transfer Round Up

As we haven’t done one for a short while, here are the players linked with moves to and from Forest with the window coming to a climax.


Max Gradel

Sky Sports understands that we were interested in Ivorian international, Max Gradel. Most of us will remember him for being the Shaun Wright Phillips like winger who put two past Forest at Elland Road in April.

Gradel is out of contract next May and Forest face competition from West Ham, Leicester, Fulham and Sochaux.

The official Leeds website today says that a fee of around £4.5m has been reluctantly agreed with St Ettiene after Gradel handed in a transfer request last Tuesday.

Andros Townsend

Another winger whose name has been circling the mill for a few weeks is Andros Townsend.

Some will have recognised him from his excellent display for Spurs in their 5-0 trouncing of Hearts recently – others may know him from a loan spell at Ipswich last season.

Andros is another pacey attacker who’d add some quality to our ailing wings.

Unfortunately for Forest, Townsend it’s looking likely to be a makeshift in the Scott Parker deal between West Ham and Spurs, which will see him join the Hammers on a one year loan.

Ryan Bertrand

This guy must feature in every single one of these round ups that we do.

Yep he’s been linked to us again with another loan move - this time by the Guardian. They say we're retracing him as a solution to that problematic LB position – although Sunday’s game another CB is desperately needed.

We’ll see how this unfolds; more than likely it won't.

Marvin Ogunjimi and Regi Goreux

These two are names that were mentioned on twitter earlier today with most fans believing there is something in it.

Ogunjimi is a 23 year old, Belgian international striker; who has gone from nothing to a national hero inside 12 months.

Like with every other attack minded player we’re linked with, his main attribute is pace. He also has a keen eye for goal with 4 goals in his first 4 international appearances for Belgium.

Goreux is a left winger who can also play right wing and either full back position. He is the last surviving member of Standard Liege’s title winning side of 2009.

It’s hard to decide whether they’ll be good enough with so little known of them.


Joe Garner

This rumour came from a Forest player – and for the record it wasn’t Joe.

It was believed a few weeks ago that Forest was due to let Garner go to Doncaster on loan for 6 months.

While nothing has materialised since, it might just be worth casting an eye over this move in the coming 24 hours.

Marcus Tudgay

The Evening Post apparently suggests that Milwall and Palace are keeping tabs on Tudgay.
