Report: Nottingham Forest scouting Hamilton's Ziggy Gordon, face competition from two rivals

Nottingham Forest are reportedly pursuing Hamilton Academical right back Ziggy Gordon.

According to The Scottish Sun, three Championship clubs are weighing up moves to sign Hamilton Academical star Ziggy Gordon.

The Accies have kickstarted the careers of Everton star James McCarthy, Crystal Palace midfielder James McArthur and West Ham defender Stephen Hendrie in recent years, with current Norwich City boss Alex Neil laying strong foundations at his former club.

Now, another Hamilton ace is being linked with a move to England, with right back Ziggy Gordon allegedly attracting interest.

The 22-year-old right back has come up through the ranks at New Douglas Park having joined the club all the way back in 2003, and has now racked up over 100 appearances for the club.

Having established himself in Scottish football, a move to England could now be on the cards for Gordon, with The Scottish Sun reporting that Charlton Athletic, Nottingham Forest and Wolverhampton Wanderers are all scouting him ahead of possible moves for the defender.

Gordon will be 23 when his contract expires next summer, meaning he would be available on a free transfer - something which may be appealing to all three clubs, especially given Forest's current transfer embargo, which prevents manager Dougie Freedman from paying transfer fees for new signings.
