Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has handed a list of potential targets to the Championship club's transfer acquisitions committee.
"As I have always said, my job is only to advise and recommend," Davies told the Nottingham Post.
"I have not discussed with the panel how many we require. That is not my decision.
"I have provided a number of potential targets and now it is essentially out of my hands.
"I have identified players I believe could strengthen us but I don't do negotiations, or the signing of players."
