Forest transfers: the local view

24 July 2010 09:20
What the papers are saying about the Reds' targets and wanted men Peter Whittingham was the subject of an official £1.5m bid by Nottingham Forest earlier in the week and although the South Wales Echo state that Cardiff City want £3m for the midfielder, they are well aware that financial problems are beginning to dictate transfer policy for the Bluebirds. Just up the road, new Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers believes there would be no point in Darren Pratley leaving the Liberty Stadium for the City Ground, insisting that the midfield star could only better himself with a move to the top-flight. Potentially leaving Nottingham is striker Nathan Tyson and the Daily Echo weighs up the reasons why he is wanted by Southampton manager Alan Pardew, who worked alongside Tyson at Reading. Finally Joe Garner has exited the City Ground, albeit temporarily for now having joined Huddersfield Town on loan until January. Terriers boss Lee Clark however is keen to make that deal permanent, calling Garner a 'magnificent' signing for his club.
