Tyler Walker made his debut for Nottingham Forest last season and is now part of the first-team squad.
The 18-year-old forward is a talented young player who has featured in all five of Forest’s Championship games so far this season.
The teenager has failed to score a single goal in those five matches, but he has created three chances and has a pass accuracy of 80%.
However, amid the signing of Nelson Oliveira in the summer transfer window, the presence of Matty Fryatt and Dexter Blackstock, and the return to fitness of Britt Assombalonga later this campaign, Walker’s playing time could be limited as the season progresses.
Forest manager Dougie Freedman, though, needs to keep on giving Walker playing time, as that is how he is going to develop his game and get more experience.
Jorge Grant is another young and highly-rated midfielder who should be given chances by Freedman as the season progresses.
The 20-year-old midfielder featured against Charlton Athletic at the City Ground in the Championship last month.
The English youngster gave a good account of himself against the Addicks, having a pass accuracy of 85% and winning two headers.
There is stiff competition for a place in the Reds’ midfield, but Freedman should still try to find playing time for the talented Grant.
