Villa, Fulham and WBA - Keeping An Eye On McGugan
Unwelcome news for Forest fans today, in that Premiership clubs Aston Villa, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion, are all reportedly interested in midfielder Lewis McGugan.
The Daily Mirror says the three Premiership clubs are set to do battle when the January transfer window opens, with Villa boss Gerard Houllier prepared to offer £3m in an effort to land the 22 year old.
McGugan has been earning himself rave reviews so far this season, by finally living up to the early promise he showed when he broke into the first team back in 2006. With 9 goals in the last 13 games and most of them spectacular, it's no wonder he's beginning to attract attention.
The big question for the club, is whether to cash in and get what they can, or offer him an improved deal to keep him at the City Ground. His current contract runs out next season.
