The likes of Karl Darlow, Jamaal Lascelles and Henri Lansbury have been heavily linked with summer moves to the Premier League, with top-tier clubs viewing them as useful additions for the present and future.

Forest have no intention of selling, though, as they are hoping to position themselves in the Sky Bet Championship promotion mix under Stuart Pearce.

Pearce is yet to officially start work, with his contract kicking in on July 1, but he is in constant contact with the coaching team at the City Ground.

They have passed on the message that no official approaches have been tabled, with Forest looking to build around their prized assets.

Eastick told the Nottingham Evening Post: "If there had been an enquiry, or even an offer, then it's something which would have been brought to my attention.

"Obviously I don’t have a crystal ball and you don't know how things are going to evolve over the summer.

"But at the moment there has been absolutely nothing."

Eastick has also been quick to point out that those who found themselves on the fringes of the fold last season will be offered a 'clean slate' under Pearce, with Algeria international striker Rafik Djebbour the latest to be linked with a move following a difficult six months in England.

He added: "Stuart has no preconceived ideas about players and it’s very much a clean slate for everybody.

"There may be players who felt they did not get a chance last season, and this is a fresh start for them too. But it is entirely down to the players as to the journey they will take.

"They are in control of their own destiny and it will all boil down to attitude and how they apply themselves in training."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
