Nottingham Forest Agree Deal For This Scottish Star: Ideal Man For Warburton?

Championship side Nottingham Forest has reportedly agreed on a deal with Scottish forward Jason Cummings on a four-year deal as new manager Mark Warburton aims to rebuild the side by injecting young blood. The Hibernian striker had a terrific season last term, which saw the side win the Scottish Championship and Warburton’s two-year stint with Rangers enabled him to encounter some fine talents like him.

Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, had a season to forget last year as they finished 21st in the Championship table, on even points with relegated side Blackburn Rovers. The once historic club of the country could garner only 51 points from the all 46 games. The club is in danger of missing out on a lot of their main players, with former skipper Henry Lansbury the latest to make the move.

Forest scored 62 goals last season, having a more than decent home form in the Championship table, and Warburton’s big challenge would be to improve their pathetic away form. They could make only 11 points out of the 23 games, which was the main factor in their slump in performance.

Forest had some consistent scorers in Britt Assombalonga, Lansbury and Apostolos Vellios, and Lansbury’s move to Aston Villa did slash a large chunk of potential in their scoring prowess. Cummings could be that difference for Forest next season, given his tremendous form of late.

The Edinburgh-born player has managed to score 23 goals and assist seven times last season for Hibernian in 40 appearances. And given that he is only 21, makes him a thrilling prospect to start with. He had also played a significant role in helping the Hibs lift the Scottish Cup in 2016 after a whopping 114 years.

Since moving to Easter Road back in 2013 from Scottish side Hutchison Vale BC, Cummings has scored 69 goals in 148 appearances. A centre-forward by nature, the former Scottish Under-21 has can also play on the left flank with equal ease and his prolific goal scoring form would be a huge asset for Warburton’s side.

Following the sacking of manager Philippe Montanier, who had a terrible seven months with the club, Forest did a brilliant job of bringing in Warburton. The English manager’s reputation precedes him and the deal of Cummings is an example of it.

Speaking to Forest’s website, Cummings said, “It is a massive club and I played against the manager’s team a couple of years ago and I like the way they played… I had a couple of mates in his team then and they only said good things about him so I am looking forward to playing under him.”

Since breaking into the Scottish Under-21s back in 2015, Cummings has scored three goals in eight games. He is yet to break into the first team, and with World Cup coming up next season, this season could be vital for the youngster.
