Nottingham Forest want to take Newcastle United's out of favour midfielder Danny Guthrie on loan until the end of the season, according to The Mirror.
The former Liverpool man made 38 Championship appearances for the Magpies last season as they won promotion to the Barclays Premier League, ahead of Forest.
However, the form of Kevin Nolan and Joey Barton this term has seen the 23-year-old's opportunities limited.
Forest are in the midst of a Npower Championship play-off push, and lie just three points off second placed Swansea City, despite having not won any of their last six league games and manager Billy Davies wants to bring in an experienced head for the all important run-in.
Davies has has good success in the loan market of late, having acquired Liverpool full-back Paul Konchesky in the January transfer window and Middlesbrough forward Kris Boyd last week.
