According to the Nottingham Post, Nottingham Forest are leading the race to sign Leeds United defender Lee Peltier.
Peltier has fallen out of favour at Elland Road since the departure of Neil Warnock as manager, and the Leeds board are looking to get him off of their wage bill.
The 27-year-old has a year left to run on his contract, but the club are willing to let him go for a minimal fee or on a season-long loan.
The former Leicester player spent time on loan at Forest last season, making seven appearances. The Reds remain the favourites to sign Peltier on a permanent deal after he impressed then-caretaker manager Gary Brazil.
They will, however, face fierce competition from Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers.
Bolton boss Dougie Freedman tried to sign Peltier last season before he went on loan to the City Ground. Freedman, himself a former Forest player, will now make a second attempt to sign the former Huddersfield star.
Peltier, who is originally a right-back but can also play left-back, centre-half and even midfield, will have some tough choices to make in the summer but Nottingham is said to be his preferred destination after his time there last season.
