Nottingham Forest are closing in on the signing of Hull City striker Matty Fryatt, according to Sky Sports.
The former Leicester City man is out of contract, and turned down the chance to extend his stay at the KC Stadium, rejecting their offer of a new deal last week.
New Forest boss Stuart Pearce is keen to bolster his attacking options, after a number of the squad from last season weren’t offered new deals with the club.
Fryatt joined Hull in 2011, and went on to score thirty-one goals in ninety-four appearances for the club in all competitions – his last outing coming in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal at Wembley last month.
Forest finished eleventh in the Championship last season after winning just two of their final sixteen league games, and they can be backed at a price of 7/2 to achieve promotion to the top flight next May.
