The present may be a little tough, but the future for Nottingham Forest looks to be very bright. The Reds have a heap of talented young players, with Joe Worrall, Ben Osborn and Ben Brereton all looking like top talents for the future.

Another two players Forest have high hopes for are Tyler Walker and Jorge Grant.

Walker, a striker, is the son of Forest legend Des Walker and is currently on loan at Bolton Wanderers until the end of the season. Grant meanwhile is out on his second loan spell at Notts County.

The midfielder has been in incredible form for the Magpies since making the switch to Meadow Lane. In 58 games for the League Two club since joining last January he has scored 23 goals for the club, including 17 goals this season in all competitions.

That is an incredible return for a midfielder and he is in fact the top-scoring midfielder in the Football League this season.

It was a stat that Walker was clearly proud to share with Grant, as he did on Twitter:

Forest fans have been wondering for most of the campaign whilst their main midfield goal threat appears to be on loan at their city rivals.

Grant will now hope to return to Forest for next season and have the same impact he has at their cross-river rivals.
