Nottingham Forest constantly looking for signings says Mark Warburton as he addresses Lewis Morgan rumour


Mark Warburton expects Nottingham Forest to be linked with “50 or 60” players in the next few months as the transfer window rumour mill begins to crank into action.

The Reds were linked with Moroccan striker Mimoun Mahi last week, with director of football Frank McParland reportedly watching St Mirren midfielder Lewis Morgan in action at the weekend.

Manager Warburton did not confirm if McParland did indeed scout the 21-year-old, but he says the Reds are constantly searching for players to strengthen their squad.

He says his current players are well aware of that and if “one or two” signings arrive in January then they will welcome that.

“Frank watches X number of games per year. Our job is to always look for the highest level of player we can secure,” he said.

“Nottingham Forest must always be looking for better quality players. That’s no disrespect to the players we have now.

“Our players know they will always face competition. Jordan Smith spoke brilliantly well the other day about the goalkeeping situation.

“We are always looking at goalkeepers, at full-backs and defenders. Every club in the land is looking.

“Players know the score. They expect us to sign better players. Good players coming into the squad gives you a better chance of success.

“That’s the industry we’re in. We’ll be linked to 50 or 60 players, as is the norm. We may secure one or two of them.”

The Scottish Sun says McParland watched Scotland youth international Morgan against Morton in the Scottish Championship with a view to lodging a £400,000 bid.

Morgan is currently enjoying the best season of his career, scoring eight goals in 16 matches.
