Nottingham Forest must resist temptation as EFL boss reveals transfer interest in 22-year-old: Opinion
The Nottingham Forest hierarchy will know that selling players could be a tough, yet effective way of raising much-needed funds this summer. It’s a big summer for Chris Hughton as he looks to finally make his mark on his squad, having been unable to properly get to grips with such a large group of players […]It’s a big summer for Chris Hughton as he looks to finally make his mark on his squad, having been unable to properly get to grips with such a large group of players over the course of last season. The manager had a squad of over 30 players left at his disposal following Sabri Lamouchi’s disposal, with 12 of those departing at the end of last season.
Nottingham Forest have been dealt a blow in their bid to bring Lee Buchanan to the City Ground this summer.
What’s the talk?
That’s according to a claim made by Alan Nixon, with The Sun journalist revealing in a post onthat Dane Murphy’s second bid for the Derby County left-back has been rejected by the Rams.

In his tweet, the journalist said: “Forest. New and improved bid for Lee Buchanan. Derby said no. Latest package definitely better but not yet enough.”

Theman also chipped in for his side going forwards, registering assists and creating four big chances for his teammates, in addition to making an average of 0.4 key passes per match.
