Warburton shares his transfer plans as up to 13 Nottingham Forest players face the axe

Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton wants a smaller squad for next season, he has revealed to BBC Radio Nottingham via BBC Sport.

Mark Warburton is aiming for a squad of 21 or 22 players, meaning that he will have to axe a number of players in the current roster.

Nottingham Forest survived the drop in the Championship on the final day of the season with a 3-0 win over Ipswich Town and he is now preparing for an improved effort in the 2017/18 campaign.

Over the course of the season, three different managers at Nottingham Forest (Montanier, Lester and Warburton) used 42 players and had a squad of 33 or 34 when Mark Warburton arrived, meaning that he will cut up to 13 players from his squad.

However, Warburton only used 21 players so we already have an indication of who might face the exit door.

Talking about his summer transfer plans with BBC Radio Nottingham, Mark Warburton said:

“We came in to 33-34 players and we are trimming.

“We need a tight squad.

“I want a squad of 21-22 players next year.

“A tighter squad is far more beneficial than a heavy squad.”

Nottingham Forest fans – what do you make of this? Who could be heading for the exit door? Let us know below…
