The Daily Mail says City will let their highly-promising goalkeeper Muric join Nottingham Forest on loan for regular first-team experience next season.

Muric, 20, played five times in City's successful League Cup run last season including both legs of their semi-final against Burton which they won 10-0 on aggregate.

He also recently helped Kosovo to a historic international win against Bulgaria which was watched by Forest boss Martin O'Neill.

Pep Guardiola has high hopes for Muric and thinks regular Championship football will help progress his career.

By becoming Forest's shirt sponsor, Football Index will now proudly display its logo on the front of the club's first-team and adult replica shirts from the beginning of the 2019-20 Championship season.

Football Index is a revolutionary gambling platform and the world's first football stock market. The platform allows traders to buy and sell shares in over 3,000 professional footballers with real money - offering football fans a chance to bet on the future success of football players, rather than gambling on the short-lived outcome of football matches.

The platform operates with all the characteristics of a stock market, with traders buying units of footballers (known as "shares"), building their football portfolios and trying to sell at a profit. The model presents a responsible and sustainable alternative to regular betting whilst enabling fans to profit from their football knowledge.

Football Index's partnership with Nottingham Forest builds on its presence in the professional game following the platform's previous kit deal with Bristol Rovers.

The agreement represents another sign of Forest's growing commercial stature within the UK and is the start of an exciting partnership with one of football's newest platforms.

Neil Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of BetIndex Ltd, Football Index's parent company, said:

"We're thrilled to have Football Index front and centre on the new Nottingham Forest kit - a club steeped in history with an expansive and proud fanbase. We're very excited to see this partnership build awareness of the Football Index brand across an engaged football audience for 2019/20 season.

"This landmark partnership marks a significant milestone in the brand's journey and illustrates the ambitions we hold for the platform. We look forward to working with the team at Forest to deliver a successful sponsorship that truly benefits all stakeholders - from the fans to Football Index's loyal customers."

Nottingham Forest Football Club's Chief Commercial Officer, David Cook, said:

"The club are delighted to announce this new partnership with a growing and exciting brand. Like Nottingham Forest, Football Index has a pioneering spirit built in their DNA and the brand fit has shone through during our various discussions.

"Across the partnership we look forward to offering our fans some great benefits and incentives whilst providing a strong platform for Football Index to achieve their marketing objectives. As a club, we are delighted that we have been able to secure the biggest shirt sponsorship in our history and it shows Football Index's commitment and belief in Nottingham Forest."

The Sun says the 29-year-old is wanted at Crystal Palace in case they lose Wilfried Zaha.

Al-Ittihad in Saudi Arabia have also shown interest in offering Antonio a lucrative offer.

The Middle East side were managed by Slaven Bilic last season.

Now they are looking to bolster their squad.

And they have put the ex-Nottingham Forest winger on their shortlist of targets.

But the Hammers want to keep Antonio in Manuel Pellegrini's plans.

Colback is heading back to Newcastle after his loan spell at Nottingham Forest ended.

But with the midfielder's time on Tyneside seemingly up, Forest team-mate Yates would love to see him back at the City Ground next season.

He told NottinghamLive: Of course, we'd all like him back. He's a top player and he was arguably our best player last season.

To have those type of players in the team is only going to help us, so obviously we want those sort of players."

He will meet the Championship club's owner on Monday. Al-Khelaifi is most recognisable as president of Paris Saint Germain, and the prospect of his ownership of Leeds will certainly be music to their ears.

The 45-year-old took over in Paris in 2011 and has spent over 300million on signing Neymar and Kylian Mbappe alone.

However, the Ligue 1 giants' continued struggles in Europe has reportedly seen the super-rich investors begin looking for a new venture, with an English club at the top of their list.

Al-Khelaifi entered talks into buying a stake in the Yorkshire club earlier this year, with Nottingham Forest said to be another possible target.

<![CDATA[Trevor Francis exclusive: Record transfers, Nottingham Forest & Clough today]]> <p>It's hard to imagine given the monopoly realm the game has entered in recent seasons, but it was only 40 years ago when the first million-pound signing shook the footballing world.</p><p> What might surprise modern fans even more is that the club which paid that landmark fee for Birmingham City star Trevor Francis was Nottingham Forest.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/trevor-francis-exclusive-record-transfers-nottingham-forest-clough-today-4282935?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BNottingham%2BForest'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> It's hard to imagine given the monopoly realm the game has entered in recent seasons, but it was only 40 years ago when the first million-pound signing shook the footballing world.

What might surprise modern fans even more is that the club which paid that landmark fee for Birmingham City star Trevor Francis was Nottingham Forest.

Legendary Forest manager Brian Clough made history by doubling the previous transfer record of 516,000 to sign 24-year-old Francis, who was by then a First Division goal machine and England international.

Speaking to Tribalfootball about his riveting new autobiography, One In A Million, Francis admits it is impossible to understand the impact of his move given today's exorbitant transfer fees.

He said: "I do think that the last few years it has gone ridiculously out of proportion to the point now where I don't think anyone cares or bothers as much as they when I was transferred.

"There was far, far greater interest with the first million pound transfer to the current transfer fees.

"With respect to the time when I played, footballers went for what I considered to be reasonably sensible transfer fees, today, I hear 20m, 30m and I'm asking the question: who's he? I've never heard of him."

In February 1979, Forest manager Clough wanted to add firepower to the defending First Division champions and decided on Francis, who had made his professional debut for Birmingham at 16 and went on to score 119 goals in 280 league appearances.

Every penny spent on Francis was repaid at the end of his debut season when he scored the winning goal in the European Cup final against Swedish side Malmo.

Deep in the first-half in Munich, John Robertson found space on the left-wing before he lofted a teasing cross to the back-post, where an outstretched Francis managed to head the ball and once again write his name in the history books.

Injuries plagued Francis over the next two seasons at Forest, and despite scoring vital goals in the European Cup quarter and semi-finals, Clough sold his record signing to Manchester City in September 1981.

Asked if he has any regrets about his Forest career, Francis replies: "Yes but that wasn't my doing.

"Brian made a decision that I was going to move, as he did with many of the European Cup team; Peter Shilton, John Robertson etc.

"If he wants you to go, whatever he said, we obeyed. You don't disagree and question anything that he said. I would have liked to have stayed at Forest, but having said that, I enjoyed immensely my time at Manchester City, where I spent just the one year, but it was great.

"I left far, far too earlier at Nottingham Forest but the biggest regret I have is the amount of injuries I sustained."

Francis remains a revered figure with the Forest faithful after all these years, despite the fallout from his shock transfer from the City Ground.

When asked about Clough, Francis believes undoubtedly that he would be successful in today's game, even if he would have had to pay a lot of fines.

"He would be because I think he had the ability and the intelligence to manage, in any walk of life, it didn't necessarily have to be football. He was a leader of men. His style commanded huge respect and he think would have been a success certainly in modern day football.

"I'm not suggesting to you that he would have conformed to modern day ways, which are very, very different.

"I laugh at that (the scientific approach) because I just cannot imagine anyone going to Brian Clough and saying: listen this what I think you should do. I know what would happen. The guy would be instantly dismissed.

"Brian Clough would not conform to some of the modern day means. I think about the media as well, he was great with the media, but on his terms.

"Today you get fined if you don't turn up to after match press conferences, so I think he'd pay a lot of fines undoubtedly. Listen he had that talent and you never lose that.

"It's like Alex Ferguson. When he started managing at Manchester United it was very different to the last five, six years of his time but he adapted and was hugely successful. And Brian Clough would've been the same. He was just a great manager."

Francis returned to England with QPR in 1988 after six years abroad with Sampdoria, Atalanta and Rangers.

It was at Loftus Road where Francis had his first taste of management when he took over from Jim Smith in a player-manager role.

Although the spell was unsuccessful, Francis succeeded in his next role at Sheffield Wednesday, taking the club to an incredible third-placed finish behind Leeds United and Manchester United in 1992 and an FA Cup final the following season. He reached another Cup final with Birmingham City in 2001.

It is hardly a surprise Francis stepped into the dugout when you consider his playing career was peppered with some of British football's greatest minds, including Clough, Sir Alf Ramsey and Bobby Robson.

While he took as much as he could from those legends, Francis insists it was important to maintain his own personality during his management career.

"I think I'd be an idiot to dismiss all the knowledge that they've gained over the years and I've watched and listened and looked at what they've done in their managerial careers when I was playing under them and you know, I'm very fortunate to have had that opportunity.

"That's not to say I tried to model myself on any of those guys but you just take little bits of information and things they used and try to implement into your own management style.

'But you have to try and be yourself. You can't suddenly become somebody different. Then you're fake. Just be genuine, honest. I think players respond to that honesty and commitment."

An eloquent and articulate man, Francis used his knowledge and skills in the world of television once his management career finished at Crystal Palace, although he is quick to inform me that he never officially retired from the dugout.

Formerly a regular on Sky Sports and BT Sport, the past few years have been tough for Francis after his wife of 43 years, Helen, was lost to cancer in April 2017.

"The last 18 months to two years I haven't done too much. I've just started back now and I've got more enthusiasm within me because I lost my wife a couple of years ago and it really knocked the sh*t out of me.

"I don't have any regrets (about management) I'm happy doing what I'm doing and whatever I do I always try and do my best, whether it's doing an interview with yourself and I try and make this the best interview I've done so far over the past three or four days.

"I've got the philosophy in life: if you're not going to do it right, don't bother, don't do it all. It's the same with chatting to you now. If I didn't think I could give you a decent interview I wouldn't bother doing it."

Francis has certainly applied that philosophy to the writing of his new autobiography, One In A Million, which you can purchase by clicking here.

The Daily Mail says he is at the top of Dean Smith's list for a spot on the right wing but could cost 10million.

Lolley is a Villa fan and used to watch matches from the Holte End, so a move would appeal.

The 26-year-old has enjoyed the best campaign of his career and scored 12 goals, a number of which were spectacular.

In Forest's 5-5 draw at Villa Park last season Lolley made four assists and also also struck a goal of his own from 30 yards. In February he signed a new contract at the City Ground taking him to 2023.
