The madness that is the January transfer window, officially starts today and Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan is reportedly a target for Nottingham Forest.

The Daily Mirror says he could sign for the Reds’ this month, along with out of favour team mate Alan Hutton, who is currently at the City Ground on loan.

Bannan is a first team regular at Villa Park and would command a hefty fee. The 23 year old has made 19 appearances for the West Midlands club this season and is also a Scotland international. Villa, who are once again in the thick of a Premier League relegation battle, are said to be in a position where they need to sell before they can buy.
