“But me revealing who we've been linked with would be wrong.”

The East Anglian Daily Times reported earlier this week that Rovers were among a group of clubs that approached Forest to check on the availability of the 36-year-old.

Burton Albion and Bolton Wanderers have also reportedly shown interest while a return to his former club Ipswich Town is rated as unlikely.

Murphy has netted 103 goals in 452 career appearances - and made 32 appearances for Forest last term.
