As transfer deadline day looms, we take a look at all the done deals and look ahead to what could happen with the Nottinghamshire teams over the next 36 hours.
Forest may have to work hard to keep players, with highly rated defender Joe Worrall the subject of a lot of interest.
Forest have rejected an approach from Burnley for the 21-year-old worth an initial £6m, rising with add-ons to around £11.5m.
The England Under-20 international eased fans concerns, telling BBC Nottingham Sport; “I am committed to Forest. Everybody knows I’m a fan. I love playing for the club and don’t want to leave.’
Nottingham Forest look set to complete their first signings under Aitor Karanka before the window is done.
It is understood that a deal for Under-21 Portugal international Tobias Figueiredo is close from Sporting Lisbon.
The 23-year-old defender is expected to join in a loan move, with a view fro a permanent deal in the summer, thought to be valued at around €2m.
Figueiredo spent last season on loan with Nacional, making 22 appearances and scoring one goal as they were relegated from Portugal’s top tier.

Forest are also in talks to sign a familiar face in Adlene Guedioura from Middlesborough.
It is thought that a loan move is more likely, although a permanent deal is not off the table.
No stranger to Forest or Karanka, midfielder Guedioura played 56 games for the Reds after signing from Wolves in 2012 and has played under Karanka at Middlesborough.
Elsewhere, Notts County have signed 20-year-old Noor Husin from Crystal Palace on an 18 month deal for an undisclosed fee.
The Afghanistan national is a product of the Royal’s youth system.
Mansfield Town have signed Adam King on loan from Swansea until the end of the season.
The versatile midfielder may not be the last signing for Mansfield, with manager Steve Evens saying; “There will be a maximum of two new faces but no more than two.
“Some might still go out, but none for a massive amount of money.”
