Nottingham Forest’s Dougie Freedman targets at least four new players in summer transfer window

Dougie Freedman says that Nottingham Forest need to sign four or five new players in the summer transfer window.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has told BBC Radio Nottingham that he wants to sign at least four new players in the summer transfer window.

"I can't control what will go out, but we need to freshen it up with 4/5 new faces,” the Scot told BBC Radio Nottingham.

Freedman has recently signed a new two-year deal which will see him remain at Forest until June 2017, and it seems that he is already making plans for next season.

It will be an interesting summer for the Nottingham-based outfit, as they cannot splash out as much cash as they have done in previous years.

Forest started well under the Scot’s reign, but they have been struggling for performances and points in recent weeks.

Perhaps Freedman has already identified the players he believes are not good enough for the future of the club and will not be of much help in their (expected) promotion challenge next season.

The Reds, who are currently 10th in the Championship table with 58 points from 43 matches, will face Blackburn Rovers away from home at Ewood Park today.
