Thor swoops for Dadi

Last updated : 17 January 2006 By Rob Davies
Despite possessing a wealth of experience, Dadi has started just one game since signing for the Reds, with the recent signings of Nathan Tyson and Grant Holt pushing him even further down the pecking order.

Gary Megson's over-populated squad now possesses no fewer than eight senior front-men and Dadi has been told that he is free to leave, despite only signing for Megson four months ago.

Thordarson faces competition from League Two rivals Boston Utd for the 32-year-old striker, but is not keen on hanging-around while the Frenchman makes his decision on the possible loan switch.

"I will not be hanging around and I have spoken to other players so they have to make up their minds," Thor told the Nottingham Evening Post.

"Eugene is a powerful lad with good experience and is a player who can do the job we are after. But I am not going to wait longer than this week because I need players in before Saturday."

The County manager remains confident he can nabb his principal target - Stoke City's Bruce Dyer - but, with strong competition from Plymouth Argyle and Blackpool, he is now looking at other options as he seeks to bolster his thread-bare strike-force.
