Platt to sue former club Forest
Nottingham Forest have confirmed that the club is being sued by ex-manager David Platt.

The ex-England player has issued a writ over a 50,000 bonus which he claims he was promised by former Forest chairman, Eric Barnes.

The bonus is a performance-related payment for Platt's second season in charge when the team finished 11th in the Championship.

Platt left the City Ground in 2001 to manage the England Under-21s.

The Nottingham club are refusing to pay and would only comment to confirm that legal action had started.

Platt recently won a claim for wrongful dismissal against the Football Association, who replaced him as Under 21-coach with Peter Taylor in 2004.
