Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton is likely to attempt to bring new players to the club from overseas during the January transfer window according to the Nottingham Post.

The 55-year-old Londoner has guided The Reds to 13th place in the Sky Bet Championship table so far this season but reinforcements are required next month if the club are to bridge the eight-point gap between themselves and the play-off positions.

Forest have had their eyes on high number of transfer targets in recent weeks and it has been reported that the club have been scouting a number of players from overseas as well as in England.

The Reds boss Warburton is thought to be looking to strengthen the spine of the Forest team from goalkeeper to attack and he has been watching players abroad to ensure that the club are competitive in the transfer market and have the opportunity to make new additions at the right price.

The board at The City Ground are expected to make transfer funds available to Warburton in January as the club look to build on what has already been a solid campaign.

Since being appointed Forest boss in March, Warburton has won 43.75% of his matches in charge while he steered the club to Sky Bet Championship safety last term.
