Grant Leadbitter: Transfer target for Nottingham Forest

Forest boss Billy Davies has made Leadbitter one of his top targets this summer and he is thought to have firmed up his interest with an offer for the former Sunderland man.

Leadbitter, who joined Middlesbrough last summer on a free transfer from Ipswich, impressed at the Riverside last term and was named the club's player of the season.

The 27-year-old started his career at Sunderland before joining Ipswich in the summer of 2009 and he has established himself as one of the best midfielders outside the Premier League in recent seasons.

Boro boss Tony Mowbray would be loathe to lose Leadbitter with the player seen as central to his plans for the new season.

However, Forest are hoping their offer will persuade Boro to cash in on Leadbitter, with a number of other Championship clubs tracking him.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
