Nottingham Forest are close to completing the signing of Fulham full-back Cyrus Christie, according to BBC Radio Nottingham.
Forest lost first-choice right-back Matty Cash to Aston Villa for £16million a fortnight ago, with Sabri Lamouchi now close to bringing in a replacement.
Jordan Gabriel started against Barnsley in the Carabao Cup and against QPR on the opening day of the Championship campaign, with Tendayi Darikwa and Carl Jenkinson also vying for a place in the side.

According to BBC Radio Nottingham, though, Forest are now close to completing the signing of Fulham’s Cyrus Christie, with a deal likely to be completed before the weekend.
Christie made 30 appearances for Fulham last season, as Scott Parker’s side won promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs.
Christie came through the ranks at Coventry City before spending time at Derby County and Middlesbrough, racking up well over 300 appearances in his career.
The 27-year-old only has one year left on his contract at Craven Cottage, though, with Fulham seemingly looking to cash-in this summer, rather than potentially lose him for free next year.
Here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions to this potential arrival at the City Ground…
What do we need another right back for? We need pace in an attacking form.

More like who is moving on at #NFFC, whether that's moving on from the club, or just to the bomb squad, as there is a 25 man squad rule now & the numbers say that's likely to make some people surplus.
