Nottingham Forest are said to be lining up a move for the League One star.

Gillingham midfielder Josh Wright has told Sky Sports he would happily finish his career at the Priestfield Stadium, but admits he'd have a decision to make if a bigger club came in for him.

The 27-year-old is enjoying his best goalscoring campaign to date, finding the net on 13 occasions for the League One side.

And with his contract set to expire at the end of next season, it's perhaps no surprise to see Wright being linked with a summer move away from the Gills.

The Sun reported this week that Championship side Nottingham Forest are keen on the Londoner, who could leave for as little as £100,000 in the coming transfer window.

Wright, whose brother Mark is of TOWIE fame, began his career at Charlton Athletic and has since turned out for Scunthorpe United, Millwall and Leyton Orient, before moving to Gillingham in 2015.

"I have had it [interest] a lot over my career, as much as I have never got that 'big move'," Wright told Sky Sports. "I am just someone that really enjoys playing my football and I have to be going into work happy. I am happy at the moment.

"I have had it before when I've been promised stuff as a youngster, I was going to get this move and that move, I've seen it all fall through and I never get sucked into it. I try to blank it out. If you let it affect you, it will eat you up on the pitch.

"I am a very, very loyal person and I will never ever forget what Gillingham Football Club, the chairman, the management and the fans have done for me. I love it there. I would be happy to finish my career at Gillingham and one day became the manager of the club.

"But I think any fan would understand that if a bigger club came in, a decision may have to be made. When I say a bigger club, it would have to be one that changed my life, changed my family's life and helped to progress me as a footballer.

"If it's a sideways step, and not a move that's going to progress my career, then maybe not. Why would I want to leave a club that I love and enjoy?"

With Gillingham still in the mix for relegation to the fourth tier, a move to two-time European champions Nottingham Forest is sure to be deemed a step up by Wright, regardless of which division the Reds are in next term.

Championship Forest are in an equally precarious position themselves, and have yet to win since appointing Mark Warburton as manager last month.

Would Wright be a good signing for Nottingham Forest?
