January transfer window: Nottingham Forest rumours- Forest play waiting game over Boyd and Burke deals
Nottingham Forest are prepared to play the waiting game on deals for George Boyd and Chris Burke.
The Red’s have tabled bids for both players but have yet to hear a positive response from their respective clubs.
Birmingham City turned down Forest’s £300,000 bid for Chris Burke last week, but the Red’s believe their offer will grow in stature with temptation proving too much as the transfer clock-watch ticks down.
The Blues are holding out for a lucrative deal but if a lofty offer doesn’t arrive Forest will swoop to sign the Scottish winger for a relatively small fee.

Forest have also offered Peterborough United a sensible sum for the sale of attacking midfielder, George Boyd.
The Posh’s chairman, Darragh MacAnthony, labelled the offer as ‘derisory’, but as February edges ever closer, the club, may be forced to allow Boyd to leave or they could run the risks of losing him on a Bosman at the end of the season.
Forest’s prudent, transfer market behaviour should steer them away from the lure of spending inflated transfer fees as they look to seal both Burke and Boyd on modest deals.
The January transfer window has only seven days remaining before the deadline at midnight on the January, 31.
