Wes Morgan: Second bid from Nottingham Forest turned down

Forest boss Billy Davies has made Morgan one of his top targets as he looks to bring the 29-year-old back to the City Ground.

Morgan left Forest for Leicester in January 2012, but has quickly established himself as a key member of Nigel Pearson's side and is club captain at the King Power Stadium.

Forest saw their initial £1million bid snubbed for Morgan last month and they are believed to have come back with an improved offer of £1.5million.

However, Leicester have again rejected their overtures with Pearson determined to keep hold of the central defender as he plans for another promotion push this season.
