Nottingham Forest are eager to upgrade manager Steve Cooper’s contract.
According to The Sun, Forest are desperate for Steve Cooper to sign a new deal — because he has such a small ‘transfer fee’ on his head.
The 42-year-old boss is fancied by Brighton and will also have other admirers after leading Forest to a remarkable promotion to the Premier League.
But Cooper has yet to extend his two-year deal and that could be a problem for Forest because his compensation figure is so low.
Although the exact figure remains a closely guarded secret, Forest may get only £1.5million if Cooper leaves, based on the contract he signed when he took over a year ago.
In comparison, the Seagulls pocketed more than £20m from Chelsea for Graham Potter and his staff.
