Nottingham Forest are believed to be interested in a deal to sign Cardiff City winger Josh Murphy according to Football Insider.
Murphy has found regular game time hard to come by this season, and has been restricted to just three league starts this term for Neil Harris’ side.
This has seen the 25-year-old linked with a January departure, although it remains to be seen as to whether any formal bids have been made by any of the interested clubs.
Football Insider also claim that both Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday are interested in signing Murphy, but a frontrunner is yet to emerge in the race to land his signature.
Nottingham Forest have struggled this season in the Championship, with Chris Hughton’s side currently sat 19th in the second-tier standings after their opening 24 matches.
Therefore, some of the City Ground faithful will be keen to see the Reds boss add to his squad before the January transfer window reaches a conclusion.
Plenty of Nottingham Forest supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on the club’s rumoured interest in signing Murphy this month.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
i like Murphy, a decent little winger… seems an odd link from another championship club, unless they need to move people on, or he just isn't going to play

Didn't we mug them off last season with uncle Albert ? .. surprised if they would do business with us because of it

Said this when we played them last week we could do with a a player just like Murphy. He’d be a perfect fit for this team.

Where would he fit in? Mighten, Ameobi starting, knockhart and lolley fighting to start. Are Cardiff going to want to loan him to us, with the bad feeling of the Adomah deal last season?
