Expect a number of outgoings from Nottingham Forest, that is what Mark Warburton has suggested in an interview with BBC Nottingham.

Several of Forest’s seven summer signings have struggled to find regular chances in the first-team and Warburton is looking to solve that issue by having some departures next month.

“We have some very talented players but the squad is too big at the moment.” he said. “There’s too many talented players not getting the pitch-time their quality deserves and that has to be looked at.”

The Reds sit eight points outside the Sky Bet Championship play-off spots, however a 4-2 defeat at Ipswich Town saw them drop points having come from behind to be level. The four goals conceded adds to a worry tally of 33 goals conceded from 20 matches.

Tendayi Darikwa was the only summer addition in the defensive department, however Warburton admitted he has no regrets about signing just one defender.

“I am not trying to sound clever but if you find a centre-half who is dominant in the air, physically and can play out like Beckenbauer, then fine,” he said.

“But they will cost your £25 million and play in the Premier League on £100,000 a week, that’s the truth of it. You find as you go down every division, there will be a certain attribute a player can or can’t do.

“From our point of view we are only going to bring players in if they are significantly better than we have got.

“But let me assure you there is work being done looking at players in so many different positions. If the decision is right then we make the move for Nottingham Forest.”
