Blackstock: Heading back to Forest
Skysports.com understands Nottingham Forest are poised to sign QPR striker Dexter Blackstock.
Forest are locked in talks with Rangers over a deal for Blackstock, who ended last season on loan at the City Ground.
A fee in the region of £1.6million is believed to have been agreed with Forest offering Blackstock a four-year deal to move to the club.
Blackstock impressed at Forest during his loan spell, scoring twice in six games and in the process helping Billy Davies' men escape relegation.
If Blackstock completes his switch to Forest he will become the third new forward to arrive at the club this summer following the additions of Dele Adebola and David McGoldrick.
