FREED NOT GREED FOR THE REDS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

DOUGIE Freed­man ad­mits he will have to box clever in the trans­fer mar­ket this sum­mer, with Not­ting­ham For­est en­cum­bered un­der a Fi­nan­cial Fair Play trans­fer em­bargo.

The Reds are cur­rently re­stricted to free agents and loan sign­ings af­ter ex­ceed­ing the max­i­mum amount of fi­nan­cial losses un­der Cham­pi­onship rules, though the em­bargo is up for re­view in June.

He said: “It is no longer a case of go­ing out and sign­ing three of four and say­ing ‘Let’s have a go at this’.

“For the first time, we have to bal­ance the books a lit­tle. It is un­for­tu­nate for me, and the me­dia, be­cause it might not be too ex­cit­ing when it comes to sign­ing lots and lots of play­ers. It might just be a few shrewd in­vest­ments com­ing in.”
