ACCORDING to reports from Grimsby Jack Lester has completed his £300,000 move from Blundell Park to Nottingham Forest.

The 24 year old striker has agreed terms with Forest boss David Platt, but he is unlikely to make his debut on Saturday as he has a slight groin injury.

Meanwhile, it appears that Forest`s efforts to sign Derby County`s Spencer Prior will ultimately end in failure.

The 28-year-old central defender was at the City Ground on Wednesday but failed to agree terms with the East Midlands club.

``I`ve spoken to Spencer`s advisor and it seems unlikely that we`ll come to an agreement over personal terms," Platt said. "He`s gone away to think about it but it`s likely that the transfer will break down.``
