Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the signing of Jason Cummings by Nottingham Forest.

Forest, who feature in the Championship in England, have signed Cummings from Scottish club Hibernian on a three-year contract.

The 21-year-old striker was instrumental in guiding Hibs from the Scottish Championship to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the 2016-17 season.

As reported by BBC Sport, Cummings scored 23 goals in 39 appearances for Hibernian during the 2016-17 campaign.

Forest Celtic striker Sutton, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport and BT Sport, has taken to Twitter to give his verdict on Cummings’s move to Forest.

Cummings is a very promising and talented young striker, and he is only going to improve in the coming years.

It could take a while for the 21-year-old to adapt to the Championship, as the second tier of English football is tougher and more competitive than the Scottish Premiership and the Scottish Championship.
