McSheffrey Too Expensive For Palace

Last updated : 09 March 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

The Palace boss has revealed that his club could not afford the Blues striker's wages and so last week he ended up moving to Forest on a loan deal up to and including 4th April when Blues will have 24-hour recall option.

"We went after McSheffrey, but we couldn't afford his wages," Warnock has told the South London Press.

McSheffrey made his Forest debut with a 68 minute appearance in their 1-1 home draw against Swansea City on Saturday.
