Report: Nottingham Forest fail with deadline day moves for two strikers

City Ground

Nottingham Forest are not expected to complete any business on transfer deadline day now.

According to a report on the Daily Mail’s live transfer feed at 09:53, Nottingham Forest are not expecting to make any more signings today.

Forest are operating under a transfer embargo, making it difficult for them to complete transfers.

However, the Reds had hoped to bring in a couple of new faces before the close of the January window.

Dougie Freedman had lined up bids for two strikers, but Forest’s attempts to force through a deal have reportedly proven fruitless.

The Reds had looked at two front man from abroad, but they have been unable to persuade their current clubs to part with their targets.

Forest will now give up their pursuit of new signings, with a quiet deadline day expected.

The Reds will have Britt Assombalonga back from injury soon, meaning that Freedman’s forward options are set to increase soon, even if they cannot make a new signing.
