Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has said the club is trying to bring in at least two players before the transfer window shuts.

Freedman refused to discuss who will come in or potentially leave, but he told BBC Radio Nottingham he "expects movement" by Tuesday.

"I have got two more spaces and have been very patient, so hopefully one or two things will come our way," he said.

"There will be comings and goings. It will come out in the wash on Tuesday."

The 41-year-old also confirmed that defenders Jack Hobbs and Michael Mancienne, linked with moves away from the City Ground, will be in the squad for Saturday's Championship game against Cardiff City.

Freedman added: "We have had a lot of speculation around the club for the last two or three weeks.

"I won't talk about players at other teams. We have never done that at this football club and I refuse to do so even though some other people's standards are very low."
