Fryatt is out of contract at Hull and he turned down an improved offer from the Tigers last week to stay at the KC Stadium.

The news alerted Forest and they are in pole position to land the former Leicester City man after stepping up their interest.

Forest boss Stuart Pearce is desperate to bolster his attacking options after seeing a number of forwards leave the club at the end of last season, and he has made Fryatt one of his top targets.

Several Premier League and Championship sides are thought to have expressed an interest in signing Fryatt, but Forest are hoping to steal a march on their rivals by luring him to the City Ground.

Despite seeing Premier League action limited with the January arrivals of Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic, and despite not starting a Premier League game all season, Fryatt was still the club's top goalscorer in all competitions last term with six goals to his name.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
