Rumour Mill-A Wade through the Forest Swamp?

Rumour Mill-A Wade through the Forest Swamp?

Could Wade Elliott be the next Clarets player to leave Turf Moor? The Sun believe he could be.

The tabloid is saying that Forest boss Steve McClaren has made a late bid for Elliott with the transfer window about to close in two days time.

McClaren is not flavour of the month amongst Forest fans at the moment after losing 4-1 at home to West Ham on Sunday. The club are in 18th spot with just five points from five games having played one more game than the Clarets. Burnley are in 15th position ahead on goal difference following victory over Forest's local rivals Derby County at Pride Park on Saturday.

Elliott has not been a regular in the starting eleven so far this season and was again a substitute on Saturday at Derby. Could he be getting somewhat frustrated at Turf Moor? He is now 32 and Eddie Howe has been trying to reduce the age of the squad so could it be time to move on for our Wembley hero?

The Sun certainly claim he wants away even suggesting that we only want to bring in Junior Stanislas as a replacement for him rather than as a squad addition.

Not sure Forest fans would be impressed with McClaren targeting Elliott though! Any Vital Forest fans like to comment? Think Elliott once said he would like to finish his playing days at Burnley, so you do wonder what's going on at the club if there is any truth in this rumour whatsoever. Seems a strange one to me,one I find hard to believe!

You sure about that? Shotton looks doubtful and back in Stoke's plans, Stanislas deal seems to have stalled? Oh well lets see what happens in next two days. Squad would be down to 17 if Elliott left now that Cort on loan to Charlton

Elliott did seem miffed at being substituted in one game which escapes me, maybe there is some truth in it? still think we should keep Elliott he can offer us options although being over 30 you do wonder, what does worry me is there seems to be more rumours out than in and we are already lacking in numbers with only two days to go before the window shuts.
