Nottingham Forest are closing in on Hull City striker Matt Fryatt.

The Nottingham Post says Forest are back in for the striker and Hull City are willing to deal if they can recoup the majority of the £1.2m they paid to sign the player from Leicester in January 2011.

That is understood to have been the stumbling block when negotiations stalled on deadline day, but the deal could now be resurrected, with fresh talks having begun.
