Derby have just allowed Nathan Tyson - who ironically made the move from Forest in 2011 - to join Millwall, and they are targeting Blackstock as his possible replacement.

Blackstock has been with Forest since 2008 after joining from Queens Park Rangers and his current deal is due to expire this summer.

It was reported that Forest were in talks over a new deal, but now Derby are looking to lure him across the Midlands.
