Forest showing an interest in Amari-Smith

Nottingham Forest are thought to be considering a move for England 'C' striker Amari Morgan-Smith, who is available on a free transfer after the demise of Ilkeston Town.

Division One side Carlisle United are also interested in the 21-year-old, who spent a fortnight with Derby County and played 45 minutes in two pre-season friendlies.

Nigel Clough never followed up with a bid but Ilkeston's former chairman, Gary Hodder, turned down a £15,000 offer from Luton Town before the Robins were wound up.

Since then, Morgan-Smith's contract has been declared null and void.
