Federici, who is third choice at Bournemouth behind Asmir Begovic and Artur Boruc, had been heavily linked with a move to the Championship club by the Nottingham Post.

Forest boss Mark Warburton declined to identify the player of interest when speculation mounted last week, although the club are clearly in the market for a new shot-stopper with Vladimir Stojkovic exiting.

The Australian was this week recalled to the provisional 30-man Socceroos squad after missing the past six months with a knee injury.

According to the Nottingham Post, it's the knee injury which has put Forest off the idea of signing Federici.

Speaking after Forest's 2-1 loss to Barnsley on Wednesday morning, Warburton said: “That target (from last week) is no longer on the radar, we have moved on to new targets.

“If they are the right players and add value, we will do it. We will not do it for the sake of it. We are close on a couple.

“But some have fallen down. There is a lot more to it than meets the eye."

Federici made five appearances in all competitions for the Cherries last season, before succumbing to injury in February.

He has fallen further down the pecking order at Bournemouth following the off-season acquisition of Begovic.

Meanwhile another Australian goalkeeper Mark Birighitti, currently on the books of Premier League club Swansea City, has been linked with second tier Barnsley.
