Nottingham Forest have won the race for Wycombe Wanderers striker Nathan Tyson.Nottingham Forest have pulled off a major coup by taking Wycombe Wanderers striker Nathan Tyson on loan.
The former Reading hit-man joins the League One side with a view to making the deal a permanent arrangement in the January transfer window.
The 23-year-old's decision to join Gary Megson's side comes, despite the highly-rated goalscorer's initial declaration that he would not leave The Chairboys before the New Year.
Tyson's prowess in front of goal this season has seen a number of clubs declare their interest in him, with Premiership sides Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic just two of his known admirers.
Cardiff City and Luton Town have also been linked with the player, while Sheffield Wednesday failed in their attempts to lure Tyson to Hillsborough after initially agreeing a fee with Wycombe.
Megson then entered the race for the striker by lodging a bid last month and despite attracting the attentions of Championship sides Hull City and Wolves, Tyson has now opted for a move to The City Ground.
Tyson's decision to opt for Forest and League One football will come as a surprise to many, with so much interest having come from clubs in the higher divisions.
The striker will have to wait to make his Forest debut, as Tyson has not been included in Megson's squad for the trip to Bournemouth on Saturday.
