Agogo Deal Practically Done

The protracted deal to take Junior Agogo from Bristol Rovers to Nottm Forest has all but been completed, according to the Bristol Rovers official website.

Rovers had earlier refused a loan attempt by Forest for the striker that had averaged 20 goals a season for the last three years. A fee for the transfer is currently unannounced.

Rovers boss Paul Trollope told the site: "With Junior tied up, we hope we can now get one in. We have said before that we would need it, and if it can be done then it will be. If it happens, we will then obviously have to assess who that person is and whether they are up to match speed in terms of whether they would be able to play against Stockport County on Sunday."

Rovers' Director Of Football, Lennie Lawrence, was an interested party at the Bulls 3-1 demolition of Championship club Coventry. His ties with former pupil Stuart Fleetwood are well know, but forum rumours are also placing the ex-Cardiff, Charlton, and Middlesboro boss as chasing Andy Williams.

Meanwhile, transfer listed midfielder David Perkins failed to feature in either First Team or Reserve Team action for Morecambe as he was excluded from both 16 man squads. Fellow Morecambe man Danny Carlton has pledged his future to the Shrimps after protracted advances from Blackpool, but Perkins seems destined to leave after boss Sammy McIlroy expected both players to have their futures settled by the transfer deadline.
