Davies will not rush new signings

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies says he will not rush into bringing new players to the City Ground.

Forest are only above the Championship relegation places on goal difference but the new boss is not panicking.

The former Derby chief told BBC Radio Nottingham: "We've got young players who might be ready to come in so we've got to look at them.

"The last thing I'll be doing is diving into the transfer market and signing players for the sake of it."

Davies admits, though, that he will be looking to add to his squad during the January transfer window.

"I've got to identify one or two players who can give us some support between now and the end of the season.

"Adding one or two fresh faces at this stage can give the team a lift and that's what we'll look to do."

The Forest boss insists that he has not enquired about any players and that there are no imminent arrivals.
