West Ham United's bid for Nottingham Forest full back Matty Cash has been rejected.

According to reports, the Hammers tabled a £10million plus add-ons offer for the highly-rated 22-year-old right back earlier today (Friday). However the offer is reported to have been instantly rejected by Forest.

Going nowhere - yet: Matty Cash

Slough-born Cash, who joined the Championship club via the FAB Football Academy back in 2016 has indicated privately that he wishes to remain at the City Ground and help Forest achieve promotion to the Premier League.

The twice-European Champions have been out of the top flight since being relegated from the Premiership at the end of the 1998/99 season.

Yet Forest's resolve would be seriously tested should the Hammers increase their offer for a player who cost the Tricky Trees next to nothing but is valued around the £15-18million mark.

Everton and Milan are also said to have made enquiries into Cash's availability in recent days, leading Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi to speak about the player's future.

"From the beginning he [Cash] has been an important player," said the Frenchman. "He is improving, but he still needs to learn and to work in this position.

"We are doing well. We don't talk about players going out. We want to talk about players who can come in. In English, it is 'no way'. No way. No way."
