Findley to Forest

Wah? Sky Sports is reporting that despite a trial with Wolves, Robbie Findley is being stolen away by Championship side Nottingham Forest and is on the verge of signing a deal. Findley just recently let his MLS contract expire with RSL.

Permits shouldn't be a big issue as he was on the WC 2010 roster and played several games for the US.

The 25yo striker is in demand by a Nottingham to bolster a weak strike force that includes Blackstock (5 goals in 15 matches) and Robert Earnshaw (1 goal in 10) where their leading scorer is midfielder Lewis McGugan (9 goals in 15 matches). It's hoped that Findley's pace pick up the scoring for Forest.

Nottingham sit 8 pts adrift of the promotion spot in 8th place with only 3pts separating them from 17th place, so any boost to their squad will be seen as a good move.
