It’s been a slow transfer window so far, with little movement — not surprising given that Forest need to sell before they can buy. Still, that hasn’t stopped the speculation about incoming players. Seat Pitch rounds up the top five rumours so far.
1. Louie Soares
Non-league star Louie Soares has caught the attention of a number of sides, including Forest, following his impressive form for Blue Square Bet Premier side Hayes & Yeading, according to Sky Sports. The former Reading trainee is believed to have been for a trial at the City Ground.
2. Stephen Quinn
Sheffield United midfielder Stephen Quinn could leave the Blades for just £350,000, reports Sky Sports. Steve Cotterill denied interest in the Evening Post saying: “As for Quinn, there is no mileage in that, I don’t know where it has come from.”
3. Nick Montgomery
Another Sheffield United midfielder has also been linked by The Star which reports several clubs are interested in the former Scotland under-21 and Futures international.
4. George Elokobi
The Wolves defender has made just 10 appearances this season and Sky Sports say three Championship clubs, including Forest, are tracking the versatile full-back.
5. Román Torres
The 25-year-old Panamanian centre-back is believed to be having an eight-day trial with a view to a season-long loan from Atlético Nacional, according to Goal.com. The international defender has previously interested Blackpool and Swansea.
