Football League Transfer Talk: Including Hasselbaink and Kane

Nottingham Forest, Millwall, Brighton and Wolves all feature.

Sky Sports is reporting that Nottingham Forest are trying to sign Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as the club’s new manager. Alex McLeish left the role after just 40 days in charge and Forest’s owners seem to have targeted the former Chelsea and Leeds United striker to take over.

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett says he would be happy to have Spurs striker Harry Kane back on loan. Kane was recalled by his parent club last week owing to the shortage of strikers at Tottenham Hotspur but Jackett insists he will jump at the chance to re-arrange a loan if possible.

Ross Wallace will not be leaving Burnley after committing his future to the club with a two-year contract extension. Speculation had started to build that Wallace would arrange a deal with another club this summer but Burnley fans can rest easy and look forward to having him in the team.

Brighton have signed Rohan Ince as a free agent after he was released by Chelsea. He has signed an 18 month contract with the Championship club after impressing on a trial in reserve team matches against Bournemouth and Ipswich Town. He is a second cousin to Blackpool’s Tom Ince.

Spurs defender Adam Smith says it was never in his mind to leave Championship side Millwall. Smith is currently on loan at the club and turned down the chance to join Wigan on a permanent transfer so that he could stay with Millwall and develop his first team experience.

Wolves manager Dean Saunders has said he wants key striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake to stay at the club. The former Manchester United player is out of contract in the summer which means he could walk away from the club for free, unless they can get him to sign a new deal.

Peterborough United have sent defender Scott Wootton back to Manchester United because of injury. Wootton is rated as one of the most promising young defenders at United but a torn hamstring means he’ll now be out of action for around six weeks before another move is possible.
