Swede Jakobsson in Reds link

Last updated : 31 July 2004 By Daniel Mounser
The 32-year-old, who was a member of Sweden's Euro 2004 squad, currently plys his trade for Danish side Brondby.

Kinnear told the Nottingham Evening Post: "I want to bring in players who are equally as good as Michael Dawson and it is difficult.

"I am looking at international centre-halves and I will be travelling to Brondby on Sunday."

Forest are currently without John Thompson (shoulder), Michael Dawson (groin) and Wes Morgan (suspension) which leaves the Reds with only Chris Doig as a recognised centre-back.

Jon Olav Hjelde played in the pre-season defeats against Middlesbrough and Tottenham and could earn himself a year's deal this week.

Forest have supposedly enquired about Southampton's David Prutton in a loan deal but it was rejected by Saints manager Paul Sturrock who sees the former Forest midfielder as a useful squad member.
