Crystal Palace midfielder Ben Watson has turned down a move to Nottingham Forest.

The Reds saw an offer for the want-away Eagles star accepted on Sunday, but have been spurned in their attempts to bring the former England U21 international to the City Ground.

Birmingham and Queens Park Rangers are also believed to be tracking Watson, although Palace boss Neil Warnock is not resigned to losing the 23-year-old just yet.

"Ben's turned Forest down," Warnock told the South London Press.

"It's not necessarily the case that he'll be leaving before the transfer deadline.

"Ben and his agent have made it clear that he wants to go to QPR so I don't know where that leaves us."

Watson has been consistently linked with a move away from Selhurst Park this summer after refusing to pen a new contract at the Championship club.
