The Celtic prospect who could make the ideal loan addition for Forest

Nottingham Forest should consider the possibility of signing Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor.

Nottingham Forest could find an answer to some of their current struggles by looking towards a loan move for Celtic's Callum McGregor. 

Based on the fact that Forest have already signed Tom Ince on loan this season (his loan move has now ended), one can assume they are still in the market for an attacking midfielder and, although Stuart Pearce has told the Nottingham Post he isn't interested in Aston Villa's Jack Grealish, as previously reported, a move for McGregor could be more intriguing. 

McGregor and Grealish were team-mates last season, with the pair excelling in Notts County's team down in League One.  A move back to Nottingham, therefore, could be tempting for McGregor - who seems to have lost his way slightly at Parkhead. 

The 21-year-old started this season in the Celtic first team and impressed - but has suffered a dip in form and a loan move could serve his progression well. 

Nottingham Forest are limited with who they can bring in due to the transfer embargo they are under and McGregor would be amongst the best players potentially available to them. 

Pearce has already expressed his desire to make sure his final loan signing of the term possesses a lot of quality and the Celtic man certainly has the potential to meet that criteria. 

The Scottish youth international scored 14 goals last campaign with County in League One and, if he could hit the back of the net with that kind of regularity at a higher level, he could be the man to help turn Nottingham Forest's season around.
