Billy Davies: Was unable to bring further fresh faces into Nottingham Forest

Reds boss Billy Davies expressed over the weekend that he was hoping to bolster his ranks before Monday's 11pm deadline, allowing Forest to build on a productive opening to the season.

They were in the market for new recruits as the clock ticked down, but saw inflated asking prices leave them empty-handed.

Chairman and owner Fawz Al Hasawi feels the club can still be pleased with the business they have been able to complete - with several fresh faces drafted in - and says attention will now turn to the loan market and the identification of targets for the January window.

In a statement released on Forest's official website, he said: "I would like to take this opportunity to inform our supporters that we today (Monday) attempted to sign four players in a bid to further bolster our squad.

"Regrettably, the value of each player rose over the course of the day to a point where we no longer considered any of our targets as suitable signings at this time.

"This should not detract from the work we carried out earlier in the window. A lot of money has been invested and I am delighted with the nine players we have brought to the club this summer. The early additions have allowed us to make an excellent start to what I'm sure will be a very memorable campaign.

"We will now turn our attention to the loan market before having another major push in the January transfer window."
