Villa Defender Linked With Forest Move

The Sun is today linking out of favour Aston Villa defender Nicky Shorey with a January move to Forest.

The paper suggests a fee of 3m would be enough to persuade St. Martin to part with the former Reading left back, who can't get in the current Villa side.

News of Forests' interest in Shorey began to circulate on the internet last week. There's no doubting he could do a job for the Reds', but would he be prepared to drop down to the Championship? That's the problem Forest have at the moment, in persuading the quality required to come to the club. Forest clearly have the ambition and the financial clout to make the step up, but they need to convince the likes of Shorey to come here in the first place.

I really hope we don't sign Shorey...don't rate him at all. He couldn't get in the Villa team even when they had no other fit left back and I think that says a lot...the fact he has England caps is also "suspect" due to the severe lack of options at that time.

He's not that bad mate. Indeed there were quite a few Villa fans that thought he had done very well in the first few games before Warnock arrived. He had a very good game against Pool, for example. And he's certainly better than any Championship LB I can think of. Bit of a non story though imo, as I don't think he'd go there anyway,tbh.
