Forest Want McPhail Back

Last updated : 27 November 2003 By Kevin Markey

The midfielder returned to Leeds from a loan period yesterday, but Forest boss Paul Hart is keen to sign him on a permanent basis.

"It's as disappointing for me as it is for Stephen, but I sincerely hope it's not the end of the matter," Hart told Forest's official website.

"We were working on trying to bring him here permanently and I will be continuing to monitor the situation with a view to doing that in the future."

Mind you, if Hart does get the Leeds job, then he won't need to bother!
