Jason Cummings could be on his way out of Nottingham Forest this summer after struggling for playing time ever since he joined from Hibernian in 2017. The 23-year-old has made just 10 starts in all competitions for Forest, racking up less than 900 minutes of football, so it’s hard to see him having a future at the City Ground this summer.

Cummins has spent the second-half of this season on loan at Luton Town, recently winning promotion to the Championship. He’s barely played a part in their success, however, as he’s made just five appearances in the last four months that have amounted to 31 minutes on the pitch. The Scotland international has spent more time on the bench or out of the matchday squad.

This season has been a disaster for the striker. He spent the first-half of 2018/19 on loan at Peterborough but fell out of favour and saw his loan cut short. And as he hasn’t pulled up trees at Luton, he’s unlikely to be recalled to the Forest first-team.

Next season, Cummings will have stiff competition for places from Lewis Grabban, Daryl Murphy, Karim Ansarifard, Hillal Soudani, Tyler Walker – so an exit may be on the cards in July.  His contract at the City Ground has another year to run, but Forest might be actively touting out the centre-forward as he’s been surplus to requirements for some time.
