Calum Davenport Becomes New Forest Target

West Ham United central defender Calum Davenport is the new target for Nottingham Forest, as manager Billy Davies attempts to bolster the defence.

Davies has been thwarted in his efforts to bring in the quality needed to strengthen the backline, after failing at the death to sign Matt Mills from Doncaster.

Davenport is 26 years old and was signed from Spurs in 2007. The 6ft, 3ins defender spent the end of last season on loan at Sunderland and is stuggling to get in the current Hammers side.

He has a year and a half to go on his current contract with the Londoners and would command a fee, but with his chances of getting into the side slim at present, a move away should appeal.

Forest also have an interest in Jon Harley at Watford, but the Hornets aren't too keen on him moving to us, despite the players desire to do so. The Reds' are still keen on Millwall's Zac Whitbread, but are being outbid at the moment by Championship rivals Swansea. Coventry City's Elliott Ward is also on the radar, although he's currently out with an injury at present. Billy Davies apparently wants all his signings done and dusted well in advance of the game with the Sheep on August 29.

He's a decent enough player, could do a decent job for you.
