Three More Deals Close To Completion
Vital Forest can confirm that a deal to bring QPR's Dexter Blackstock to the City Ground is done and he is now finally a Forest player, after agreeing personal terms with the Reds'.
The signing of Blackstock, along with those of McGoldrick and Adebola will just about complete the NFFC strike force for next season...and that's a pretty impressive strike force for any team in the Championship.
It looks like Matthew Mills at Donny is also on his way, with former Forest target Rob Jones at Hibs out of the reckoning. That could be down to his agent, who has been touting him around to the highest bidder and anyone that will listen.
The deal of the summer for Forest fans could be that of Southampton midfielder Andrew Surman. The 22 year old is certain to leave St. Mary's and we believe that's he's as good as a Forest player already. From what we know here, Forest are at present struggling with getting a keeper in. Fans favourite Lee Camp, is not necessarilly the first choice of the club.
The club was asked if Vital Forest should hold back on naming these targets, in case it compromised any of the deals. NFFC Chief Executive Mark Arthur said, 'You are, of course, at perfect liberty to publish whatever you believe to be fact. We will only announce signings once they are legally binding. Some you will get right; some you will not! Have a fun summer.' In light of there being no announcements on the OS and Mr. Arthur's response, I've decided to go ahead.
Vital Forest trusts it's sources and believes that all three of these targets will be announced as Forest players in due course, along with those of McGoldrick, McKenna and Adebola. It's shaping up to be a fun summer already Mr. Arthur!
