We're hoping for a forward loan signing before the Plymouth game on Tuesday. Bakayoko from Coventry mooted.
Seems more likely that young lad from Norwich - Tyrese Otomoye. Greased lightning supposedly.

Hoping to sign 2 today, 1 striker (Bakayoko) 1 midfielder (Bostock) but given how secret we are those 2 guesses could be way of the mark.

He's made a few cameos for us this season (including on Saturday in the cup) and looks raw but very promising. Has pace and surprising physicality for someone his age, but needs to work on things like his positioning a fair bit. Don't know how you play, but he should do well if you can get him latching onto through balls, rather than aiming to cross it to him (he's very much a striker in the mould of Teemu Pukki, or at least has the potential to be).

Rumours our end Robbie Cundy has been recalled by Bristol City and will be loaned out to Gillingham.

Any good? Evans has been saying that we’ve got a deal in place for a defender but it couldn’t go through straight away, so I guess that would fit.

Should suit, then. Although we do tend to go a bit ‘lumpy’ when under pressure. Might link up well with DJ for their Norwich days.

Yes I like him a lot. Hadn’t played as much as he would have liked but has all the attributes to do well in league. Hope it’s wrong but no smoke without fire!

Sadly for you, that’s just been confirmed by our twitter.

John Bostock signed on a 18 month deal

Sounds like a really good signing and feels like he has been around for ages. Last at Toulouse, must be a first to go to Donny from Toulouse! Shame he didn't arrive until after Saturday mind!

What a weird career he's had. Seems an age ago that he pissed Crystal Palace off as a young lad.

Yeah a bit of a strange one, Forest fans wanted him to stay, we’ve been in talks with him since October, Darren has really sold his and the clubs vision to him, just need a striker and we will be ok but if we can get Sims until the end of the season too then we might just stay in contention until the end

Looks like Sims is going to re-sign for Donny, must be a big boost for you guys?

Not much in the way of transfer rumours for us so far.

We definitely need a couple of bodies in after losing Gotts, Ross and Elbouzedi.

I'd expect a RB as one plus another utility. We must have the smallest squad in the division, touch wood we've been fairly lucky with injuries although we've had one out and out striker all season. I'd like another striker but we may well wait for Morton to be fit which is expected in a month or so. All things considered to be where we are at this stage of the season is an IMPressive feat.

If it’s true it will be a real coup, still out with his hamstring so won’t be available for Saturday, just need the elusive striker and we might have a chance of finishing the promise shown so far off

Whereas we’ve probably got one of the biggest squads.

Pity most of them are shite, mind.

We've brought Kioso on loan, who had been on loan at Bolton for the first half of the season.
Good player, green but real potential. A few Luton fans thought he should’ve been given more of a shot in the first team.

Brendan Galloway must have some agent. He has signed on an 18 month deal with Shrewsbury. He has chronic tendinitis dating back to his Everton days.
Sounds like Galloway failed a medical which is annoyingly unsurprising.

It appears it is true absolutely buzzing he’s turned down Championship clubs just like Bostock to sign for us, DM has a silver tongue

MA seems to think a couple will be coming in, which, as you say, are needed. Tonight was basically our full available squad wasn't it? Archibald and Morton out injured and then it's a drop to three 17 year olds.

Apart from Lewis, but its pretty obvious he'll be on his way once the right team comes along.

I make our squad 25 players. Of which 2 are out on loan (Elbouzedi & Ross), 2 injured (Morton & Archibald) & 3 youngsters (2 x 17 year old defenders - Cann & Roughan & 18 year old back up keeper). Take out Lewis and the 17 years olds and I make it 18 players we have available (which like you say were our starting 11 and 7 on the bench). Crazy!

Everyone says that! It's like the 'highly rated' tag or the Robbie Keane who was a supporter of 12 clubs during his career!

The person who gave me the information is a bit more reliable than that, Sims has enjoyed his time with us and Darren Moore is a massive factor without him neither would be with us. I wouldn’t worry Sims isn’t fit and Bostock is likely to play only a bit part on Saturday

Anyone down here in need of a left back?

Josh Earl is going out on loan from us, supposedly two bottom half L1 sides are after him.

Edit - Shrewsbury & Swindon it seems.
