Forest Accept Bid For Earnshaw

Forest Accept Bid For Earnshaw

Nottingham Forest striker Robert Earnshaw looks set to exit the City Ground, as the club accept an offer believed to be from Middlesbrough for £4.5m.

Earnshaw signed for the Reds' from Derby last season in a £2.65m deal. He finished the season as the clubs top scorer with 17 goals, despite an injury plagued campaign.

The information we have, is that he isn't entirely happy with the move, as he is settled in Nottingham. Middlesbrough are after a swift return to the Premiership and are keen to get their hands on the best striker in the Championship. Forest though, will spend the money on a replacement, despite having 5 other strikers to pick from.

Boro are flush with cash at the moment, following the £5m sale of Huth to Stoke and will be even better off when the sale of Tuncay for a similar fee to the Potters is completed.

What a load of *********. It was a made up story when it was first published last week that Boro were interested, and its an even more made up story now. No way will Boro invest in another midget striker when we have Emnes, Lita and Franks already - Boro will step into the transfer market but it will be for a big centre forward like Rob Hulse, not Earnshaw. Why not give this fabrication a rest?
