Eoin Jess' proposed move to Nottingham Forest has hit a snag.

City's former Scottish international was expected to complete the switch yesterday. But it is understood the deal has been held up over the compensation he is due from the club.

Forest are still hopeful the free transfer can be finalised early next week. Jess, who has two more years on his City contract, said: "I don't really want to comment about it at the moment."

Goalkeeper Aidan Davison is wanted by his former club Grimsby.

The cash-strapped Mariners have been forced to transfer-list Welsh international keeper Danny Coyne to ease their mounting debts. And 34-year-old Davison, who played 77 games for the club, has been lined up as his replacement.

But he is unlikely to leave City until Coyne, who is available on a free, has been moved on. Cardiff remain favourites to land him despite failing to agree personal terms.

Meanwhile, City Supporters' Trust have signed up a prestige member - Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Gordon Taylor. The players' union leader sent in his cheque to become the 208th person to join.

The trust will hold a committee meeting next Thursday at Undercliffe Cricket Club (7.30pm) before holding an official launch in the Bantams Bar at Valley Parade on Saturday, August 10 between 2pm and 6pm.
