Nottingham Forest make fresh bid for Derby County’s Lee Buchanan

Nottingham Forest ‘have made a new bid’ for Derby County’s Lee Buchanan, reports The Sun’s Alan Nixon.

Buchanan, 20, has been linked with a surprise switch across the East Midlands to join up with Nottingham Forest.

The Englishman had a breakthrough season with the Rams last time round and has even seen links to Arsenal previously.

But Nixon now writes in The Sun on Sunday (15.08.21, pg. 63) that Forest have come in with a fresh bid for the full-back, with an initial fee of around £1.35million plus ‘extras’ to take the total cost to around £2million.

Nixon goes on to write how Derby obviously don’t want to sell one of their prize assets to such a close rival but that Buchanan ‘could be keen’ on the move as there’s currently no Premier League interest in him.

Third time lucky

Nixon previously reported (Sun on Sunday, 25.07) that Forest had made an improved second offer for Buchanan.

Both of Forest’s first two bids then have seemingly been knocked back as they now plot a fresh offer for the full-back, who’s missed the start of Derby County’s season through injury.

Derby saw a 1-0 lead at Peterborough United vanish yesterday as the Posh staged an injury time comeback, whilst Forest lost out to the 10 men of Bournemouth.
