Nottingham Forest striker Jason Cummings has quickly become an enigma wrapped in a conundrum following his arrival back in the summer of 2017 from Hibernian.

The 23-year-old had been prolific for Hibernian in front of the net and he wasn’t considered that much of a gamble as he made the switch to the City Ground but after a semi-bright start he soon tailed off and with fans split about manager Mark Warburton, some felt he hadn’t got the right game time to make the adjustment.

In any event, he made a quick loan switch to Rangers for the remainder of the season and again he had a mixed time of it, and ultimately they didn’t option the buy clause they had on the deal as we looked to cut our losses.

2018/19 saw him head out to Peterborough United who saw their early interest in him rejected, and with six goals in his opening six matches it looked like he might have found a new home. After that explosive start though he’s only found the net twice more in the following 16 games, and Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony has now suggested they have a decision to make in terms of cutting their own losses when the January window reopens given he’s now third choice in the striking department.

If he returns, I can only see him moving on again if we have any takers as I can’t see Aitor Karanka overly using him ahead of Lewis Grabban and Karim Ansarifard.
