One of the main causes for concern regarding the Nottingham Forest squad of last season, was the absence of a recognised left back at the club. With the injury to Julian Bennett ruling him out of the entire campaign, Forest played without an experienced player in the position for the whole season. Wilfred Bouma, Patrick van Aanholt and even Nicky Shorey have been touted as possible players to fill the void in recent months, but we believe the club are looking a little further afield and are hoping to secure the services of a young 19 year old from Norway, Joakim Vage Nilsen.
Nilsen plies his trade in the Norwegian Tippeligaen, with FK Haugesund and has represented his country at U19 level. There's not much known about the fella, but he's said to have a shot on him that resembles a certain Stuart Pearce. Nilsens' name was leaked out on the forum on Sunday, by a regular poster and has since been confirmed as the number one choice to fill the troublesome position at left back. The deal has not been completed, but discussions to make him a signing for the Reds', are said to be progressing well.
It's also strongly rumoured that Stoke City striker James Beattie could be on his way to the City Ground this summer. Forest face competition from WBA for his signature and have yet to agree a fee with the Potters, but the player is in favour of a move to Forest, after a fall out with manager Tony Pulis.
Swansea City's Darren Pratley is probably the worst kept transfer secret of the summer for Forest supporters, but the club are hopeful of landing their number one target before the pre season preparations get underway. Cardiff City winger Peter Whittingham (again) is also a target, but he's another player we will face competition for, if we want to see him at the City Ground next season.
There's no confirmation of any new signings as yet, but the rumour mill is just gathering momentum, so it shouldn't be too long now. Enjoy the summer folks. It's gonna be a good 'un!
