Nottingham Forest have opened talks with former England Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce over the vacant managerial position at the City ground.

Pearce turned down the job last week but has now re-opned talks with the Championship side, and a longer contract offer has now been tabled.

Former England U21 manager Pearce, who spent 12 years with Forest as a player, told Sky Sports News on Friday: “I had a chat with the owner and I was very impressed with him.

Pearce has re-opened talks with Forest

“He came across really well with a real passion for the football club but I said to him I didn’t want to take those negotiations any further on the grounds that I had one or two personal issues that I had to put in place first, so it went no further than that.

“But I must say I was very impressed with him. He came across really well and obviously I have got my fingers crossed that they get in the play-offs and have a good push for the Premier League this year.

“It was the right time not to pursue it, but it was nice to be talked about and obviously nice to have a chat with the owner of a club that is very close to my heart.”

Pearce is joined by former Watford boss Gianfranco Zola, Steve Clarke and Malky Mackay as the favourites for the position at the club.
