'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Forest's Transfer News & Rumours.

It's fair to say that many of Forest's problems last season came in the striking department - failing to take their chances.

With Tudgay, Miller and Derbyshire leaving the club in May and Dexter Blackstock a long term injury victim, Stuart Pearce had clearly noted this.

The 'Bosman' signing of the out of contract Matty Fryatt on a 3 year deal, from July 1st looks a very shrewd bit of business. The experienced Championship striker opted for the move to Forest, despite Premier League Hull offering a new deal.

This was then followed up by the signing of the promising Dutch giant, Lars Veldwijk from Excelsior for the mandatory 'undisclosed fee'. The 22 year old scored 34 goals in 42 league games last season as Excelsior won promotion to the Eredivisie.

The latter signing could be a calculated gamble, with Brian Eastick suggesting that Lars is one for the future and may not be ready for first team action quite yet.

Danny Fox & David Vaughan have also agreed terms on permanent switches, so the squad is certainly taking shape.

With Pearce over in Brazil, Eastick has suggested that Forest are likely to do more business, with further movements expected both in and out during pre-season.

Rumours are again linking Karl Darlow with a move to a Prem side - to the likes of Liverpool or Tottenham, whilst Henri Lansbury will always attract interest - Fulham already linked.

There will be fringe players that Forest may want to move on, rather than cashing in on their young stars, Like Darlow, Lascelles, Lansbury & Paterson.

In a recent Vital Poll, 82% felt former loanee, Lee Peltier, would make a great, versatile addition to Pearce's squad. With Leeds man looking to exit Elland Road, Forest could look to make the switch permanent.

Jack Collison is another reported to be catching Pearce's eye, with the West Ham man having now left the London club. The fact he will be another freebie, will alert numerous clubs - but his injury problems are also well documented.

At present, we've done some good business - let's hope it continues!
