Should Nottingham Forest snap up Callum Chettle from Ilkeston Town?

The teenage midfielder is the son of club legend Steve Chettle.

There is no other word to describe Steve Chettle at Nottingham Forest other than legend.

The Nottingham-born centre-back was at Forest from 1983 to 1999, playing over 500 times for the club and guiding them to a best ever Premier League finish back in 1995.

After he left Forest he ended up at Barnsley, Grimsby Town and Burton Albion before hanging up his boots whilst at Ilkeston Town ten years ago.

Now it is his son that is making a name for himself.

Callum Chettle has been in terrific form for the Northern Premier Division side Ilkeston this season, s much so he was recently called up to the England 'C' team - the only member of the squad playing outside the Conference system.

That has seen the likes of Chesterfield linked with the 18-year-old midfielder, as reported by Sky Sports.

But should Forest bring him in?

Chettle was let go by Forest aged 15 but three years at Ilkeston has seemingly helped him improve his game.

He is just a kid, and could have the talent to become as popular as his old man at City Ground - if he gets the chance.
