Aberdeen and Hibernian are interested in signing Zach Clough from Nottingham Forest in the summer transfer window, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported that Scottish Premiership duo Aberdeen and Hibernian are interested in signing Clough from Forest in the Championship in England on loan in the summer transfer window.

Forest manager Aitor Karanka is reportedly ready to send the 23-year-old out on loan for playing time.

 

Nottingham Forest exit?

Clough is a very talented and promising young player who can operate as a forward or as an attacking midfielder.

The way the Englishman made an impact at Bolton Wanderers underlines his quality, but the 23-year-old has failed to do much of note at Forest since he moved to the Reds from the Trotters in January 2017 for a transfer fee reported by The Nottingham Post to be worth £3 million.

Forest have some quality players in the attacking department, and it is going to be hard for Clough to play regularly for the Reds this season.

Both Aberdeen and Hibernian are ambitious clubs in the Scottish Premiership, and it would make sense for the 23-year-old to join either team on loan this summer.
