Just posted this on the Jonathan Parr thread, but thought there might be some debate in here somewhere..
Seivad has just said that Parr is still with the Aafk squad, but his agent is in England but unsure where and what for..
@RBFlemma on twitter just said 'No contact between clubs at the moment, but Forest apparently working on financing the transfer'..
Iv just put 2 and 2 together, and come up with the following..
Im thinking, Wilson to Celtic for £xxx, Parr to Forest for the same £xxx..?
This would leave us with 2 situations -
1 - Parr to fill the LB position, Lynch to become cover for CB/LB, Tshabalala for LW..
2 - Parr to fill LW, Bertrand signs to cover LB, Lynch becomes cover for CB/LB..
3 - None of it pulls off and we keep going with square pegs
We aren't short for cash (altho our chairman can be tight), so Im thinking the 'working on financing the transfer' bit means we are trying to sort out Wilsons future..
Any thoughts?? What would you like to happen??
Either way I think this means Bennett is out of our plans?

I predict 3!
I predict Marthur will pull out, and slip in elsewhere
4. Bertrand signs at the end of Jan with Lynch covering in the meantime.
It's clear from the way the club are hoping for another club to come in and loan him that Bennett is out of our plans.
Just another thought.. Do you think MA and ND are trying to be cryptic and give us subtle hints as to who we are signing..
For example: Robbie Findlay, Tudgay, Tshabalala, Parr.. Fits in awfully well with the teletubby theme tune
I go with option C but not cuz our chairman is tight. He has invested more than most (if not all) other championship chairmen! The hinderance here is Marthur imo.
There's the traditional Forest January transfer window option -
Forest refuse to be held to ransom over Bertrand and he moves to Cardiff for £850k.
Forest line up Woodgate on loan for the season and let Wilson go to Celtic for £275k. Woodgate decides to stay in London and goes to QPR until the summer.
Chambers breaks his leg on 2 February, Lynch tears his ankle ligaments and is out for 9 months.
But that won't happen this year. Things will happen this time round that will suprise us all.
Do you know or hope things will be different Erik? I hope!
Don't forget Mark Arthur's annual appearance on the 1st of Feb to assure us that the club can 'exploit the loan market.'
How long is the loan market open for?
5. We sign Bertrand with Lynch as cover for LB/CB, we sign Tshablala to play LW & Julian Bennett goes back to Palace for £250k.
More possibility being making do with what we have - Lynch as left back with Cohen as cover and Tyson on the left & Bennett going to palace for 250k which pays nicely for Marthur & the AP's summer holiday.
