It is understood the Reds are keen to land the talented Frenchman on a three-month loan deal with a view to a permanent move in January.

Wanderers rejected improved offers from Forest leading up to the close of the summer transfer window, with the most lucrative believed to have been in the region of £3.5million.

The Black Country club are keen to keep hold of Sako, who already has five goals this season, as they aim to secure immediate promotion from Sky Bet League One, with their valuation of the 25-year-old standing at £4million.

And in response to Forest's latest interest in their prized asset, Wolves' stance has not budged.

An official statement released through social media channels read: "Wolves are aware of the loan/transfer speculation surrounding Nottingham Forest and Bakary Sako.

"Forest have renewed their interest, but the situation remains unchanged.

"Bakary is an important player and his value reflects that. Wolves are not encouraging the interest and there is no certainty of a deal."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
