Nottingham Forest are one of three Championship clubs interested in signing defender George Friend from Middlesbrough, a report from Football Insider has claimed.

Friend is out of contract at Middlesbrough this season, and has reportedly been offered a new deal by the club in an attempt to keep him at The Riverside Stadium, although it seems there are options for the defender to move elsewhere.

According to the latest reports, Forest are taking an interest in a move for the 32-year-old, as are fellow Championship sides Swansea and Birmingham.

Since joining ‘Boro from Doncaster back in 2012, Friend has made 299 appearances in all competitions for the Teeside club, earning himself the role of club captain in recent years.

Taking to Twitter to react to that news, plenty of Forest supporters were keen to discuss the prospect of bringing Friend to The City Ground for next season, with some seemingly far from convinced of the merits of this move.

Here, we take a look at what some of those fans had to say.
