Nottingham Forest are reportedly now the favourites to sign Danny Graham from Sunderland.

Nottingham Forest are reportedly getting closer to signing striker Danny Graham from Sunderland.

Graham, 28, is on a season-long loan with Hull City, but has not appeared for the Tigers since New Year's Day and the recent signings of Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long look to have reduced his chances of playing time even more.

A new striker has been Forest's main priority this transfer window and, according to BBC East Midlands Today, they could be set to give Graham a chance to prove himself in the Championship.

Bolton Wanderers are also said to be keen on signing Graham.
