Dexter Blackstock and Lee PeltierThe Sun are this morning claiming that Leeds United have tabled a £750,000 bid for Nottingham Forest striker, Dexter Blackstock.

Neil Warnock has made no secret of his desire to strengthen Leeds United’s strikeforce and is believed to have turned his attention to the 26-year old frontman after Leicester City beat him to the signature of Chris Wood.

Newly appointed Nottingham Forest manager Alex McLeish has stated publicly his desire to keep Blackstock at The City Ground, but with only 6 months remaining on Blackstock’s contract, it may prove difficult for McLeish to refuse a £750,000 bid if the striker wishes to leave.

Blackstock transferred to Nottingham Forest from Queen’s Park Rangers in 2009 for what was believed to be a seven figure fee. Since his arrival at The City Ground, Blackstock has scored 32 goals in 99 league appearances, 5 of which came in his last 4 appearances against Leeds.
