The American is a free agent after being released by Premier League Villa at the beginning of June and he is interesting several clubs.

Lichaj played 23 times for Paul Lambert's side in the 2012/13 season and he impressed Forest, who will be targeting promotion from the Championship in the next campaign.

The full-back made 42 appearances for Villa in total since joining the club as a trainee in 2008 and he will want to enjoy a positive 2013/14 to boost his World Cup ambitions ahead of next summer.

Forest could benefit and they are set to win the race for Lichaj ahead of the host of other clubs.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
