Mick McCarthy is wanted by managerless Nottingham Forest.

The Sunday Mirror says McCarthy will be tempted back into ­management by ­Nottingham Forest, with a ­£20million transfer kitty from the club’s new ­Kuwaiti owners.

McCarthy heads a shortlist of four potential replacements for sacked boss Steve Cotterill and will hold formal talks in the next 48 hours after cutting short a family holiday in Portugal.

The former Wolves boss has been out of work since February, but was first ­approached by Forest’s new regime four weeks ago.
