Nottingham Forest striker Daryl Murphy was linked with a move away from the City Ground on Deadline Day, but no deal materialised.
Luckily for the Reds, the League One and League Two windows remain open until the end of the month for loan deals. This means that the 36-year-old striker can still secure a move away from the City Ground.
According to the East Anglian Daily Times, Burton Albion, Doncaster Rovers and Bolton Wanderers have expressed an interest in the target man.
Sabri Lamouchi informed the experienced striker earlier this summer that he was deemed surplus to requirements. The Frenchman’s stance is unlikely to have changed despite the club’s failure to sign another striker on Deadline Day.
Therefore, it would be a surprise if the striker didn’t find himself another club before the end of the month. He’ll want to be playing football at this stage of his career.
‘Daryl is a great player’
Doncaster Rovers are one of the three clubs in League One to have been linked with a move for the striker.
Darren Moore took over at the Keepmoat Stadium this summer following Grant McCann’s decision to leave for Hull City.
When asked by the Doncaster Free Press whether Murphy is a player he is interested in, he responded: “We’ve been linked with him and a host of others because of his availability.
“Daryl is a great player, seasoned professional and I can understand why we’ve been linked with him.
“But me revealing who we’ve been linked with would be wrong.”
Murphy featured regularly under the management of Martin O’Neill in the second half of last season. He made 32 appearances last season, contributing six goals.
There’s no doubt that he has been a good servant to the club since joining from Newcastle United two years ago. The Reds have certainly got value out of the £2 million they paid for his services.
He would be a good addition to any League One side’s squad.
