Lincoln City look set to join the race to sign defender Hamza Bencherif this summer.

The Algerian has been released by Nottingham Forest and is looking for a new club.

The 21-year-old spent time on loan from the Championship side last season making 12 appearances and scoring one goal.

He's under 23 so would command a fee at tribunal, even if out of contract

No thanks, he's utter shite and apparently he's on a fair wedge at Cardiff.


Personally, I think he's a lot better than some of the defenders we have got at the club. When fit he's a Cardiff and Northern Ireland regular, surely that must mean he's not a bad player. Every time I have watched him he's very competent, likes to get forward, good set piece delivery.

I heard a rumour that we tried to get him on loan.

Not sure what you class as a fair wedge???

Yeh fair enough but going on the amounts the tribunals often set and that southampton are depsperate Id guess 250k would get him.

Nottingham Forest sign Corrimal's Hayden Durose
BY JOEL RITCHIE
6/05/2009 4:00:00 AM
Two-and-a-half years ago Corrimal's Hayden Durose had never kept goals in a match. Now he is on the verge of becoming a professional.

Durose, 16, recently secured a two-year scholarship with English Championship side Nottingham Forest - the final stepping stone to becoming a fully fledged specialist in the cutthroat world of European football.


What makes the South Coast United youth grade custodian's rise to prominence so astonishing is that he only took up goalkeeping in 2007.


Nevertheless, those in the know - such as 1974 Socceroos gloveman Jim Fraser - quickly liked what they saw in 190cm Durose.


Fast forward to six weeks ago when Durose trialled with Forest, Leicester City and Liverpool before earning a call back from the Nottingham club.


He was invited back to England during Easter and toured with Forest's academy team to Greece, where they beat their Olympiacos counterparts in a tournament final.


Durose's efforts in the Greek Islands and during a follow-up match against the Everton Academy were enough for Nottingham to offer the Year 11 Holy Spirit College student a two-year scholarship that starts in July.


"I was a defender before I decided to give goalkeeping a go," Durose said.


"Straight away I was pumped to do it. I started training with people like Jim Fraser.


"It (the contract) still hasn't sunk in; when I started I wasn't really serious about it but now I love being a goalkeeper."


Unlike fellow Illawarra export Alex Baird - who signed with rival Championship side Derby County two months ago - Durose will relocate to the other side of the world without his parents, Steve and Kim.


Durose's contract means Nottingham Forest will take care of his accommodation and schooling.


However, the demands of playing at one of the world's elite football academies mean Durose is unlikely to return to home soil for two years. "I'm going to miss them, big time," Durose said of his family.


"I'm going to be so far away and playing so much football so I'll probably be over there for the next two years.


"I'm grateful my parents allowed me to do this. I'm a bit nervous."


Durose who started as an outfield player with Corrimal before a stint at Balgownie, gave up his first sporting love - basketball - to pursue a football career.


That, and settling between the sticks, may be the best decisions he has ever made.

Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez is thought to be considering re-signing Liverpool winger Paul Anderson.

The 20 year-old enjoyed a successful season-long loan spell last season as he helped us win the League One title, but the following year he opted to join Nottingham Forest on loan, rather than spend another year at the Liberty Stadium.

The Evening Post believe that Martinez is now 'weighing up' a possible return for Anderson, as Liverpool are now willing to sell the pacey winger - and he is keen on a return to the liberty.

Following his departure last year, Martinez said it would be unlikely that Anderson would return in the near future. He also said yesterday that the Swans could be linked to 100's of players as they watch and follow a huge number of targets throughout the Summer.

Considering that, we'll just have to wait and see I suppose whether or not Martinez does line up a bid to bring Anderson back.

SHAUN Barker was crowned king of the Seasiders - then shrugged off speculation linking him with a host of Championship rivals.
Barker scooped four player of the season awards, including The Gazette's.

And that will further alert Leicester, Derby, Nottingham Forest, along with Simon Grayson's Leeds, all of whom are rumoured to be weighing up a summer raid for the centre back.

"If you hear that other clubs are interested it is nice, a bit of an ego boost for yourself I suppose," said the 26-year-old.

"But I've heard nothing about anything more definite so at the moment it is just speculation.

"If you play a few games for a club it is always likely that clubs are going to watch. It's then about whether or not another club takes it a step further, which you never know.

"I will just keep my head down and get on with things.

"Obviously if it got any further with any clubs then it goes to the chairman and the club first and then it will be my decision afterward.

But that is talking two steps further than we are at now.

"A couple of years ago there was speculation about Leeds. I've played another two seasons at Blackpool since and been very happy here, and there is no reason why that shouldn't carry on.

"The last three years have been the happiest of my life."

Barker's terrific second half to the season earned him the lion's share of the awards at last night's end of season ceremony.

In front of 400 invited guests in the sponsor's lounge at Bloomfield Road, Paul Rachubka and Alex Baptiste also won awards, while Brett Ormerod was honoured for his 100th career goal (scored against Norwich) and on-loan Dj Campbell picked up the leading goalscorer award, despite playing only 20 games.

But it was Barker who hogged the headlines. And he was particularly pleased to clinch the Gazette prize - voted for by more than 1,000 readers - because he claimed he had been waiting two years for the moment.

"In my first season at the club I remember Ian Evatt got the Gazette award and pipping me at the post. I was gutted about it so I am delighted to win this time and it means a lot to me," he added.

Striker Dexter Blackstock and keeper Lee Camp are the subjects of a joint 2.8m move to Nottingham Forest.

I can't see why it would be that much, especially since we have payed 300k for Blackstock already.

Around the 2million mark would be more realistic
