Nottingham Forest want Huddersfield midfielder Lewis O'Brien and left-back Harry Toffolo... less than two months after the pair who helped Town to the Championship playoff final suffered agony against Steve Cooper's side

Nottingham Forest want Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O'Brien as well as left-back Harry Toffolo.

Toffolo scored six times and provided seven assists as the 26-year-old shone for Town in the Championship last season.

Academy product O'Brien was almost ever-present as the impressive Terriers finished third at the end of the regular campaign.

Both players appealed unsuccessfully for second-half penalties as referee John Moss courted controversy during the Championship playoff final on May 29, when Forest beat Town 1-0 to secure promotion to the Premier League.

Forest have signed Troyes right back Giulian Biancone, 22, for £5m and remain in talks for £13m Mainz defender Moussa Niakhate.
