Jonathan Greening: Nottingham Forest turned down York's bid

The 34-year-old left Bootham Crescent to join Manchester United back in 1998 but looks unlikely to be returning to help the Minstermen battle against relegation from the Football League.

Greening has made just 11 Championship appearances this season, six during a loan spell with Barnsley.

"We tried to bring him to the club and made the phone call," Nigel Worthington told the York Press. "It's not happening because they did not want to let the lad out and want to keep him with the rest of the squad.

Meanwhile, Forest's in-form midfielder Henri Lansbury is a doubt for their npower Championship clash with Brighton on Saturday.

The former Arsenal midfielder sustained injuries to his shin and calf during England Under-21's 3-0 win over Romania and was taken off early on.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
