The Sun journalist Alan Nixon has provided another update on Nottingham Forest and their chase for Millwall winger Jed Wallace.
He claimed yesterday that a medical would take place once the 27-year-old had regained full fitness.
Now, it seems as though there are some hurdles for Forest to overcome if they are to land Wallace before the end of the month.
The versatile forward was left out of Millwall’s team that lost to Steve Cooper’s team at the weekend. That, however, was down to a minor setback in his recovery from injury.
Nixon has now suggested that Forest’s pursuit is turning into a saga.
He believes that personal terms are yet to be agreed between the Reds and Wallace, although he does claim Forest still want the player.
Wallace will be out of contract during the summer. Millwall don’t want to lose him on a free and a deal could be struck before the window closes.
Leeds, Watford and Middlesbrough are all thought to be keen on the player as well as Forest.
Wallace has been a Millwall player for five years. He has been one of the Championship’s top-performing players and he could be a coup for Forest.
Quality: Forest should do whatever it takes to sign Wallace
Although he’s currently injured, boss Gary Rowett doesn’t believe this latest setback is anything major.
Wallace has avoided serious injury during his time at Millwall. That bodes well for Forest and he’s typically a reliable performer.

His versatility could be a useful asset to Cooper’s team. He can play on either flank or through the middle and has actually operated as a striker this season.
Wallace would be a proven option if he’s added to Forest’s attack and the club must do whatever it takes to make it happen.
