Nottingham Forest have failed in a bid to sign Bradley Wright-Phillips on loan.Nottingham Forest have failed in a bid to sign Manchester City youngster Bradley Wright-Phillips on loan.
Forest boss Gary Megson enquired about taking the striker on loan, as he looks to bolster his attack.
However, City were not willing to loan him out and Megson will now switch his attentions elsewhere, as he looks to strengthen his struggling Championship squad.
"We've found ourselves coming up against big problems in bringing some players in," Megson told the club's official website.
"We need to be able to offer players something better than where they're at, so it's not got to be going too well for some of the players we're looking at.
"We're finding that, in a lot of instances, what we can offer in terms of where we are football-wise isn't particularly attractive to a lot of players.
"They've got to be good enough in the first place and there's not many players about at this stage of the season."
