Jason Holt: Forest are keen to acquire his services

Supporters of Hearts have generated more than £750,000 since the club were placed in administration in June - mainly through season-ticket sales.

And Hearts managing director David Southern insists the Tynecastle outfit can hold out for a better deal on players as Gary Locke looks to keep his pool together.

Southern said: "It's thanks to the fantastic fundraising efforts of the supporters that we are in a position where we do not have to sell our best talent for below market value.

"Gary Locke has a small squad and will face a challenging season so to rid him of another player, and such a talented one as Jason Holt, would not benefit him or the club as a whole."

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies is believed to be looking to strengthen his midfield and clearly thinks the acquisition of Holt would be a big step towards achieving that aim.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
