Nottingham Forest receive emphatic response to fresh seven-figure bid for six-time international - report
By Harvey Byrne
Danish side Brondby have emphatically rejected a fresh seven-figure bid from Nottingham Forest for goalkeeper Frederik Ronnow, according to a report.
The Nottingham Post have claimed on their website had upped their offer to £2.1million for the 25-year-old after already seeing an offer rejected earlier in the week.
However, it is believed that the Danish club are holding out for a figure of around £2.7millio for their number one.
The report also states that it now remains to be seen whether the Midlands giants will return with a third bid for the six-time capped Denmark international as they continue their search for a new goalkeeper.
Ronnow has been a part of the Brondby team for just two years after making the switch from AC Horsens in the summer of 2015.

He has already played 87 times in total for the Danish giants, conceding on 90 occasions, while keeping 34 clean sheets.
The stopper also has just two years remaining on his contract at Brondby.
Football Insider verdict:
Forest must sign a goalkeeper this summer with Stephen Henderson’s injury and Ronnow certainly looks a good option for the club. The Brondby stopper was playing in the Europa League qualifying stage earlier in the month, but he was unable to help his side progress as the Danish outfit fell to a 2-0 aggregate defeat against Hajduk Split. Now, the Championship may be a step down from those heights, but it also provides a platform for players to try and make the step up to the Premier League. There is no guarantee that Ronnow will be a success in England, as many goalkeepers from across Europe have failed before, but Forest must see something in him.
