Sky Sports News sources have reported that Leeds have made a bid for Nottingham Forest striker Dexter Blackstock.
This comes after a period of rumours regarding a transfer to Leeds.
Blackstock, who has 32 goals in 99 games for Nottingham Forest, remains in the plans of new manager Alex Mcleish, who hopes to retain him. This led to a dismissal of rumours several days ago. However, with Blackstock’s contract running out at the end of the season, Forest might be tempted to cash in on the striker, lest they lose him for nothing in June.
This also correlates with Warnock’s desire to bring in a striker to provide competition for Becchio, especially one with experience at this level.
Sources place the level of the bid between £7-800,000.
