This is Nottingham - Forest hope to secure future of Camp and Tyson
- NOTTINGHAM Forest will look to make Lee Camp's loan move to Nottingham Forest permanent in January.
- And they also hope to persuade in-form Nathan Tyson that his long-term future is at the City Ground.
- Colin Calderwood hopes QPR can be persuaded to part company with keeper Camp when the transfer window opens, after seeing him make a real impression since signing in October....
"We have Lee until January 1 but we are very hopeful that it will become a permanent move," said Calderwood. "We have the rest of the month to sit down and discuss things.
But we are really pleased with Lee's input to the team and it is important that we have stability in terms of minimising the goals against us."
Calderwood believes it is vital Forest produce a revival in form to persuade Tyson that his future does not lie elsewhere....
"Camp has made nine appearances during his loan spell and, while that has included only two clean sheets, that has not been a reflection of the keeper's form.
The former Derby man has made two crucial penalty saves to earn Forest points and also made an outstanding late stop to preserve three points against Barnsley last weekend.
Having signed Czech international Radek Cerny in the summer, Camp is out of favour at Loftus Road and QPR could be persuaded to sell. Nottingham Evening Post

News Shopper/Paul GreenJackett: We won't spend big
MILLWALL boss Kenny Jackett says there are no plans to splash the cash during the January transfer window....
The boss also confirmed Adam Bolder was likely to extend his loan from QPR today for another month. [Note: Loan was extended]
Bolder spoke earlier this week about his desire to make the move to The Den permanent when the transfer window opens, but Jackett was unable to give any firm commitments.
He explained: “It very much depends on how things go between now and then for us and also for Adam.
“QPR are happy to extend his loan and a lot depends on what they think as to whether it can become a permanent deal.
“They’ve let him play in the FA Cup and those are the sort of indicators which tell you things.
“Adam will have options himself so it depends on what QPR and the player think, but we’ve been pleased with him so far.
“We’ve got him until Saturday and are hopeful of extending it until the January transfer window....” Newshopper

- Ian Holloway confirmed as one of the Swindon Job Applicants
- Swindon Advertizer: "...Meanwhile, Town chief executive Nick Watkins confirmed yesterday there is a shortlist of five names for the vacant manager’s position at the County Ground and confirmed former Plymouth and Leicester boss Ian Holloway has applied for the role. However, sources close to Nottingham Forest denied speculation that Colin Calderwood is set to resign from the City Ground and is being lined up as Swindon’s new boss, insisting the Championship club’s board of directors are willing to give the Scot more time to turn their disappointing season around."
