Nottingham Forest are not giving up hope on signing Birmingham midfielder Neil Danns on loan - but it looks increasingly likely he won't be coming to the City Ground.
Manager Colin Calderwood today again expressed his frustration over the role of players' agents in transfers.
He admitted he had continued to chase Danns since first attempting to land the former Colchester player in the January transfer window.
'We have made an inquiry, but what the agent is doing is wrong,' he said.
'When we spoke to Birmingham in January the player did not want to come. We left it there, but made a couple of phone calls to keep up to date with the position, to see if anything has changed, as he is not in the team.
'But it is wrong for his agent to be speculating. He is just trying to put his player in the shop window.'
Calderwood admitted Forest have been pursuing several players as they attempt to bolster their squad for the League One run-in.
A £650,000 bid for Gillingham's Matty Jarvis was also scuppered by an agent, after the winger was advised to stay put until the summer - despite Forest's League One rivals being willing to do business rather than run the risk of a transfer tribunal in the summer.
'We have made a lot of inquiries, but we have not been able to progress anything,' said Calderwood.
