The close friend of a Nottingham Forest striker believes his pal is 'dying' to return to Scottish football.
Jason Cummings moved to Nottingham Forest from Hibernian two years ago but has spent most of that time out on loan.
Another switch now looks likely for the 24-year-old.
And according to the Edinburgh boxer, Lee McGregor, Cummings would jump at the chance to join Hibs' city rivals, Hearts.
Dying to get a move back to Scotland I cannot understand why hearts haven’t snapped him up yet! Trust me this boy would score goals for us and he’s exactly what we need! https://t.co/Ntf1oxoPVz— Lee McGregor (@LeeMcGregor3) August 14, 2019
I know he’d come to hearts— Lee McGregor (@LeeMcGregor3) August 14, 2019
McGregor also claimed that Nottingham Forest would allow the Scotland international to leave them for free - representing a loss of around £1 million on his initial transfer fee.
No mate we could get him on a free transfer driving me mad watching that at weekend there and we have Jason chomping at the bit to come and play for us surely we should bring him in before hibs do and he bangs the goals in for us rather than against us like he’s done many times— Lee McGregor (@LeeMcGregor3) August 14, 2019
Cummings may have made his name at Hibernian but it was Hearts he grew up supporting, and he was previously part of the Jambos' youth set up.
The Edinburgh native has played 17 times for Nottingham Forest and scored four goals.
He has also spent time with Rangers, Peterborough United and Luton Town while on the Reds' books.
