A Host Of Names In The Forest Frame

New club ambassador John McGovern confirmed the trio were in the thinking of owner Fawaz Al Hasawi while Al Hasawi himself played down claims made by Neil Warnock that the chairman would interfere with team matters.

McGovern spoke to BBC Radio Nottingham, the first sign perhaps that the club is attempting to rebuild bridges with the local media, and said:

"At the moment we are discussing the fors and againsts, strengths and weaknesses of the ones that are on the list."

***Update*** Stuart Pearce is reported to have held talks with the club while former West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke is another name to enter the frame.
