League One Nottingham Forest have bid £200,000 for Preston defender Kelvin Wilson.League One Nottingham Forest have further outlined their ambition for the new season by bidding £200,000 for Preston defender Kelvin Wilson.
Forest signalled their intent with the signing of Celtic captain Neil Lennon and now, a move for a player who started 16 games for Preston last year, will further vindicate those that have tipped them for promotion from League One.
Wilson is already well acquainted with Nottingham, having started his career at Meadow Lane with Notts County.
The 21-year-old, who can play either as a central defender or full-back, joined Preston last season following a successful loan spell at Deepdale at the end of the 2005-2006 campaign.
"We can confirm a bid has been made for Kelvin Wilson," said a Forest spokesman.
