Stuart Pearce: Has seen Nottingham Fores

Having identified that the acquisition of proven marksmen had to be a top priority this summer, Forest have moved quickly to dip into the early-summer market.

Matty Fryatt has been snapped up on a free transfer at the end of his contract at Hull City, while a calculated risk has been taken on Dutch forward Lars Veldwijk on the back of his efforts for Excelsior.

With the likes of Dexter Blackstock, Simon Cox, Darius Henderson, Rafik Djebbour, Jamie Mackie and Jamie Paterson also on the books at the City Ground, Forest are now well-stocked in the attacking department.

It is, however, an area that will be continually assessed, with it possible that incoming boss Stuart Pearce will open exit and arrivals doors before the summer window closes.

First-team coach Brian Eastick told the Evening Post when pressed on whether Forest would be chasing another frontman: “That is a question for Stuart, really, but what I would say is that is an area where no manager can ever have enough options, within his squad.

“Much may depend on what happens during the pre-season period, when it comes to other players moving on.

“I am not saying for definite that we will definitely bring in another player in the forward area.

“But, if a player became available, who Stuart felt would give the team an advantage, I am sure we would consider it.”

Forest have also tied up permanent deals for David Vaughan and Danny Fox, with the pair having taken in loan spells on Trentside last season, but Eastick insists there is no rush for business to be completed.

He added: “No, it’s not about the timing of the signings, it is about the quality of the signings for us.

“In an ideal world, you have your squad completely put together for the start of pre-season. But that very rarely happens.

“Stuart is delighted with the work we have done so far. We just wanted to get the right men.”
