Dexter Blackstock

Blackstock comes to Forest

Nottingham Forest have completed the loan signing of Queens Park Rangers striker Dexter Blackstock until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has scored 12 goals for Rangers this season but has struggled to hold down a regular place.
The England Under-21 international has also played for Southampton, as well as loan spells at Plymouth and Derby.
He becomes Forest's seventh loan player and could make his debut in next Saturday's match at Barnsley.

Forest confirm Blackstock Interest

The 22-year-old is currently stalling on signing a new contract with QPR, sparking interest from several clubs.

Having failed with a loan bid for former Forest favourite Marlon Harewood, Davies is desperate to add to his forward line ahead of Thursday's loan deadline as he seeks to secure his side's Championship status.

"We are looking to bring in one or two before Thursday, but we are also putting one or two things in place for the summer as well," Davies told the Nottingham Evening Post.

"We are looking at several targets and making several enquiries and Dexter Blackstock is among one of those names we are asking about. He is one of several players we are looking at.

"We know we have a rebuilding job to do, we know we have to plan for the future. At this moment we are looking at possible targets and doing all we can to look at possible targets now. We do not want to get to the summer and then be scrambling for possible targets. We need to get ahead of the game now."
