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.
