|Chambers: I'm Only Talking to One Club|
Thu 05th Jul 2012 08:46 by TWTD.co.uk
Town target Luke Chambers has confirmed that he has only been in talks with one club since his Nottingham Forest contract having came to an end last Saturday. Chambers was at Portman Road for talks, a medical and the traditional tour of the stadium and training facilities on Tuesday but is yet to formally agree to join the Blues.
Chambers says he would have been happy to stay at Forest but their financial circumstances - their takeover is yet to be completed - meant that no new offer was on the table and he has no alternative but to move on.
While yesterdayâ€™s claims of a deal worth almost ÂŁ16,000-a-week are well off the mark, the 26-year-old told the Nottingham Post that an attractive contract â€“ believed to be for three years â€“ is on the table at Town: â€ťI have had a very good, concrete offer from another club. I have to do what is best for my family.
"I like Nottingham, I have loved being at Forest and we like Nottingham as a family. It has felt as though it is my club and my home.
"I don't particularly like the idea of uprooting my family to another city; of moving across the country. But sometimes you just have to do what is best.
"Like Forest, it is a good club, with good traditions and history. And they are ambitious. That was important. I wanted to go somewhere where they wanted success."
He confirmed that he left Portman Road without signing on Tuesday because he was keen not to rush into anything rather than speak to other clubs: â€śI am only talking seriously with one club. I just needed some time to make my decision."
The deal looks likely to get done in the next few days with Chambers joining his new team-mates for pre-season training by Monday at the latest.
