Love him or hate him, Forest defender/midfielder James Perch, is in demand and is the subject of a possible move away from the City Ground.
Former boss Paul Hart, now works as caretaker manager with Prem boys Portsmouth and he's a great admirer of Perch. Hart is credited with developing the careers of many a young talent, with Perch being one of many to benefit from their time at the Forest Academy together.
Message board rumours surfaced last week, about a million pound bid coming in for the 23 year old from Pompey, but it was rejected by the club. Bite their bloody arms off! was the shouts from some fans, but it appears Perchio has great admirers amongst the coaching staff at Forest.
Paul Hart, despite the current uncertainty over his own future, wasn't put off by Billy's refusal to sell and upped his first offer of a million quid, in the hope of landing his former pupil. Once again though, Billy told him where to go. Davies was having none of it and has other plans for Perchio.
Perch has been used in just about every position at one time or another and according to some people, isn't very good in any. But. Davies apparently sees him as a Centre Half and has been impressed with his performances on the training pitch. The rest of the coaching staff at the club are agreed that this is his best position and see him as a shoe in for the role.
Because Forest are becoming increasingly frustrated and impatient with Doncaster and their playing hardball over the Mills affair, they've turned their attentions to Elliott Ward at Coventry and Zak Whitbread at Millwall. It could be that Forest are usining these two targets to put pressure on Donny, but it could be that they have had to lower their sights. Either way, it seems we will get at least one new Centre Half and it could be two, if Perch fills the role.
