City turn down Forest's striker bid

The powerhouse former Coventry City striker is out of contract at Ashton Gate in the summer but has been offered a new deal to stay at the club and with City currently moving up the table, is worth more staying than going.

"It's too late to do business and we don't want to lose Dele," manager Gary Johnson told BBC Radio Bristol.

Elsewhere, deadline speculation involving the Reds has surrounded Hibernian central defender Rob Jones and Norwich winger Lee Croft.
