Coventry striker Leon Best admits he is 'over the moon' to be targeted by Nottingham Forest, but insists he is happy at the Ricoh Arena.

Forest have had two bids for Best, who has scored four goals in 21 games for Coventry this season, turned down as they attempt to bolster their squad for a push towards League One promotion.

Best, who joined Coventry last summer from Southampton, is happy to be linked with his home-town club but the 21-year-old insists he will not be leaving the Sky Blues.

"It is very flattering and I am over the moon to see that another club is interested in me, especially my home-town club," said Best.

"But I only joined Coventry in the summer and I am happy here.

"I know myself that I am not playing anywhere near as good as I should be, so it definitely gives me confidence.

"I just need to concentrate on improving my game and working hard for Coventry and hopefully I can start getting more goals for the team."
