Skysports.com understands Bristol City have failed in a bid for Nottingham Forest striker Nathan Tyson.

Robins boss Gary Johnson is looking to sign 'two or three players' during the summer, and a new forward appears to be on his shopping list.

Johnson has already denied an interest in Wolves' Freddy Eastwood, but has been chasing Tyson.

A bid of £750,000 is understood to have been rejected by Forest and Johnson is now weighing up an improved offer.

Tyson has 12 months remaining on his City Ground contract, but has been offered a two-year extension by manager Colin Calderwood.

The former Wycombe striker will find extra competition for a place in attack next season after Forest brought in Robert Earnshaw from Derby.
