Forest improve offer for Wesley Verhoek and continue to chase Routledge
The initial offer for Verhoek was not substantial enough
Nottingham Forest are believed to have improved their offer for Dutch winger Wesley Verhoek. The ADO Den Haag ace is said to be frustrated at the lack of movement on a new contract and wants out.
The 24-year-old can play on both wings, and as a striker, and forest boss Steve McClaren is well aware of his ability after managing FC Twente in the Eredivisie. The bid is believed to be in the region of £2 million.
Forest are also keen to sign Newcastles’ Wayne Routledge who is wanted by a host of clubs, including Premier League Wigan, Swansea, and QPR. If the reds were to acquire his services it would be something of a coup for McClaren who is looking to add to the signings he has already made.
