Nottingham Forest are eyeing West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long.

The Express & Star says Forest boss Billy Davies is believed to be considering a big-money move for the Baggies hitman, who remains in contract dispute at The Hawthorns after an aborted £6.5m move to Hull on deadline day this summer.

The Ireland international's future remains uncertain after several months of talks to extend his contract failed to yield an agreement.
