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.
