Dubes Rejects Forest Move

Last updated : 04 February 2005 By Kevin Markey

Forest made an enquiry for the 29-year-old centre-half as new boss Gary Megson looks for a replacement for defender Michael Dawson, who joined Spurs as part of an £8m deal with Andy Reid earlier in the week.

Duberry spent a successful three months on loan with Stoke City before returning to Elland Road last month due to an injury crisis.

He was recalled from his spell with the Potteries side to play in Leeds’ FA Cup tie at Portsmouth but has not featured for the first team since and is not in Kevin Blackwell’s long-term plans.

Duberry appears to be waiting for a permanent deal in order to leave Leeds.
