Report: Nottingham Forest teenager Nikolay Todorov offered contract by Hearts, can leave for free

Nottingham Forest teenager Nikolay Todorov is seemingly set to join Hearts.

According to The Scottish Sun, Hearts have offered a contract to Nottingham Forest youngster Nikolay Todorov ahead of the summer transfer window.

Hearts have enjoyed a strong first season upon their return to the Scottish Premiership, and manager Robbie Neilson will be looking to kick on and add to his squad this summer.

Now, it seems that Nottingham Forest striker Nikolay Todorov is heading to Tynecastle, having recently spent time on trial in Edinburgh earlier this month.

Todorov, 19, joined Forest from Cherno More Varna in 2014, but saw his campaign last season marred by injuries, before joining Worcester City and Hemel Hempstead on loan this season.

Now though, Todorov is set to make the jump from non-league to Scottish Premiership, having seemingly done enough to earn a permanent deal with Hearts.

The Scottish Sun report that Neilson's men have offered a deal to Todorov ahead of the summer transfer window, and he can sign on a free transfer having been deemed surplus to requirements at the City Ground.

A strong striker who has impressed with his aerial ability, Todorov will be hoping that this move brings more success than his time with Forest, which has ultimately come to a dead end as he prepares for a permanent switch to Edinburgh this summer.

Do you think Forest should keep Todorov?
