Aston Villa are still waiting to discover if their bid for Henri Lansbury will be accepted.

A £3million offer for the Nottingham Forest captain remains on the table as Steve Bruce looks to revamp his squad.

Midfielder Lansbury is out of contract in the summer and was not included in Forest's squad to face Wigan in the FA Cup on Saturday because of a hamstring injury.

Derby are also reportedly interested in the former Arsenal youngster, who has 19 appearances for Forest this season and joined from the Gunners in 2012.

Bruce is looking to revive his squad after replacing Roberto Di Matteo in October but will not allow Ross McCormack to go out on loan after Villa paid Fulham £12million for the striker in the summer.

Nottingham Forest Head Coach Philippe Montanier will serve a two match touch-line ban after being charged with improper conduct.

It relates to an incident involving the Frenchman during Forest's 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday last month. He will have to sit in the stands for their games against Birmingham and Blackburn.

The FA released the following statement:

Philippe Montanier will serve a two-match touchline ban with immediate effect after he was charged with misconduct following the game against Sheffield Wednesday on 24 September 2016.

It is alleged that after the game finished, the Nottingham Forest Manager, who was also fined £3,000, used abusive and/or insulting words towards a Match Official.

The charge was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.
