Preston reject Forest McKenna bid

McKenna still has two years to run on his deal with Preston

Preston North End have rejected two bids from Nottingham Forest for midfielder Paul McKenna.

BBC Radio Nottingham understands that the bids for the 31-year-old were in the region of £600,000.

But North End chairman Derek Shaw told BBC Radio Lancashire: "I can confirm that we have rejected two bids from Nottingham Forest for Paul McKenna.

"I am extremely disappointed that Nottingham Forest have chosen to make this public."

McKenna has played over 450 times for Preston, including a spell under current Forest manager Billy Davies.


He is thought to be amongst a number of targets for Davies, which include striker Dexter Blackstock, and defenders Joel Lynch and Chris Gunter, who all ended the season on loan at the City Ground.

Meanwhile, Doncaster Rovers have denied reports that Forest have tabled a seven-figure bid for central defender Matt Mills.

Rovers confirmed that Forest have made an inquiry about the 22-year-old, but no bid has been received.
