Nottingham Forest have rejected another bid from Brentford for the services of Brennan Johnson.
The Telegraph claims that an offer was submitted in the region of £10 million and it was rejected straight away.
Brentford tried desperately to get Johnson during the summer.
They made three bids, all of which were lower than the £10 million recently made and the 20-year-old stuck with Forest.
He has grown as a player this season. Johnson has scored five goals and registered four assists, featuring in all 23 Championship games.
Yesterday, it emerged from the Daily Mail that Tottenham, Newcastle and Everton were all kee on adding the Forest man to their ranks.
In that article, the valuation was thought to be £20 million, with the Reds not overly desperate to do any business.
Johnson spent last season on loan with Lincoln. There, he helped the Imps reach the League One play-off final, scoring 13 goals and registering 14 assists.
Steve Cooper has made the Forest academy graduate an integral part of his team.
Since he joined the club, Johnson has started every game and right now, he’s enjoying his football.
What have Forest fans said about Johnson bid?
It’s fair to say that the fan base have been poking some fun at the Bees following their latest feeble attempt to sign Johnson.
A bid of £10 million doesn’t half seem bizarre, particularly on the day that it was reported that Forest want double that amount.

Forest fans are desperately hoping to see Johnson stay. They believe that the comment about wanting to keep working under Cooper could be telling.
Here is what the Reds fan base have been saying at the reports of Johnson being the subject of another Brentford bid.
