So, this might perhaps be the biggest warning sign ever that we could be in trouble of losing one of our key men.
Although don’t say I didn’t warn you when and if this does become true further down the line.
According to a report from Football Insider, Forest defender Matty Cash is ready to quit the club so that he can get a move to the Premier League following our failure to secure promotion. The defender has a number of clubs interested in him, and Forest were forced to reject a £10m bid from Sheffield United last week.
I think that it’s only natural for this to start being the case for someone like Cash. Having been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time now (and Serie A too if you believe those reports that A.C Milan wanted him), and knowing what he’s apparently capable of with those offers, it was always going to be a case of him being in the Premier League next season, just for which club. Then for us to then fall short at the end of the campaign, that more or less sealed the deal.
Do you expect Cash to be at Forest next season?
It now does become a matter of how much we can get for Cash, I think the horse has already bolted when it comes to his desire to play in the division above, and it’s probably not going to go away any time soon.
Let’s just get the best price that we can for him, fall back on some of our other right-backs like Carl Jenkinson and Tendayi Darikwa, and use that money to invest in the rest of the team.
What about you? Would you be happy to see Cash leave this summer? And if so, how much do you think we should be accepting for him?
