Taylor’s departure confirmed
Nottingham Forest striker Lyle Taylor has joined Birmingham City on loan until the end of the season.
The former Charlton striker is now in line to make his debut against Derby County on Sunday.
Taylor struggled to carve out a place in the Reds’ starting XI following the arrival of Keinan Davis from Aston Villa and the form of Lewis Grabban.
But he hopes for regular departures at Blues where he finds his former manager of Charlton, Lee Bowyer.
Forest forward Taylor was left out of the squad to face Barnsley on Tuesday night as the Reds cruised to a 3-0 victory at the City Ground.
He leaves the Reds having scored three goals in 19 appearances for Forest this season.
Carvalho is the next to go?
Nottingham Forest playmaker Joao Carvalho has been pictured arriving in Greece as he seeks to complete his move to Olympiacos.
The midfielder is ready for the exit door after failing to command a regular place in the starting XI under head coach Steve Cooper.
And Greek outlet FWS printed a photo of Carvalho leaving to complete his move which is expected to be completed before the window closes at midnight on Monday.
Cavalho has made just eight appearances for the Reds this season and with his first-team prospects looking bleak, his departure would now have been sanctioned.
It is claimed that boss Pedro Martins gave the green light for the transfer to go ahead after initially putting the breaks in motion.
Hammer Price Request
West Ham are said to have put a £1m price tag on Emmanuel Longelo’s head if Nottingham Forest were to sign him before the deadline closes on Monday.
Reports earlier this week claimed the Reds are interested in the left-back as they continue to consider potential additions before the window closes.
According to the EX-WHU employee, Forest saw a bid rejected for around £400,000 for the Iron Under-23 left-back with the Premier League side holding for a sum at six figures.
Forest are currently lacking viable left-back options, with Max Lowe fresh off an injury which saw midfielder Jack Colback play in the position in his absence.
Nottingham Forest have reportedly ‘cooled off’ their interest in Millwall winger Jed Wallace.
Forest have been linked with Wallace for several weeks after registering five goals and six assists in the first half of the season.
He hasn’t featured for Millwall since December 11 with a hamstring injury but is expected to return to action soon.
Steve Cooper had seen Wallace as a direct replacement for Brennan Johnson, according to the Mirror, although Forest are now confident of keeping the young Wales international on their books beyond Monday’s deadline.
Forest have rejected another offer from Premier League side Brentford for Johnson, this one a club record, and refuse to let their key man go.
