After missing out on Chris Wood to Leicester City, the Yorkshire Post claim Neil Warnock has turned his attention to Nottingham Forest striker, Dexter Blackstock.

The 26-year old Oxford born striker has just six months remaining on his contract with Forest.

A crowd favourite at the City Ground, Blackstock has made public his desire to stay with the club but has yet to be offered a new deal.

Blackstock joined Forest in 2009 and has scored 34 goals in 108 league appearances for the club. Leeds fans will need no introduction to Blackstock’s goalscoring exploits, 5 of his goals have come in his last 4 consecutive appearances against The Whites.

Elsewhere, Neil Warnock is expecting to complete a deal with Michael Tonge before the weekend while negotiations to secure a permanent deal for Jerome Thomas are believed to be ongoing.
