According to Nottinghamshire Live, Jason Cummins could leave Nottingham Forest in January, with the striker having received ‘multiple enquiries’ from other clubs. The 23-year-old is currently out on loan at Peterborough United, but owner Darragh MacAnthony admitted he could let Cummings leave to get more playing time elsewhere.

Cummings has made 22 appearances for the League One side this season, scoring and creating 11 goals. He’s struggled for playing time in recent months, however, being reduced to substitute appearances since mid-October. The Scotland international has racked up just 145 minutes of league football since October 20 and hasn’t scored a goal for Posh since August.

His last assist for the club was in November, and before that it was in September. Even with Forest struggling for goals, Cummings hasn’t done enough on loan to prove his worth at the City Ground, so another move could follow in January. New manager Martin O’Neill may want to assess his options after replacing Aitor Karanka, but it speaks volumes when a player’s loan club are happy to cancel the deal early.

Forest have Lewis Grabban, Daryl Murphy, Karim Ansarifard and Hilel Soudani for options up front. Grabban has scored just two goals since November, Murphy only has one goal since August, Ansarifard has been unavailable and Soudani is currently injured.
