Nottingham Forest have signed prolific Wycombe striker Nathan Tyson on loan - with a view to completing a permanent deal in the January transfer window.
The 23-year-old had also been a target for several other clubs, including Sheffield Wednesday, Wolves and Hull.
He has bagged 13 goals from 19 league and cup appearances this season after finding the net 22 times last term.
However, Forest have stated that he will not be considered for Saturday's League One game at Bournemouth.
Tyson is also ineligible for Monday's FA Cup first round replay at Weymouth as he is cup-tied, having played for Wycombe in their first round tie.
Reading-born Tyson began his career with his home town club but started just nine league games in five seasons at the Madejski Stadium.
He also had loan spells at Maidenhead, Swansea, Cheltenham and Wycombe before joining the Chairboys on a permanent basis in March 2004.
His initial loan spell at the City Ground will last until 3 January.
"Although we didn't want to lose him, this is a financial move that everyone has to understand," Wycombe manager John Gorman told his club's website.
"Nathan has kept going all the way through the speculation, and he's been a pleasure to work with. We wish him all the best."
Luton and Cardiff also had bids for Tyson turned down earlier in the season.
