Nottingham Forest had high hopes for Jason Cummings when he was signed from Hibernian prior to the 2017/18 campaign.

Then boss Mark Warburton signed him for just over £1 million and he arrived at the City Ground with a decent goalscoring record north of the border.

The 23-year-old managed just 14 appearances for the Reds, netting one goal, before spending the second half of the season on loan at Rangers.

Cummings was unable to work his way into Aitor Karanka’s thoughts during the summer; with the striker joining Peterborough United on loan.


Cummings made a blistering start to life at London Road, scoring six goals in his first five games for Steve Evans’ side.

He has since hit a blip, however, subsequently falling way down the pecking order.

Based on comments from Peterborough’s Director of Football, Barry Fry, Cummings’ days in Cambridgeshire are numbered.

Speaking to the Peterborough Telegraph, Fry said: “Jason has become a problem.

“MK Dons and Lincoln have shown an interest in him but he doesn’t want to drop into League Two.

“We are speaking with Forest to see if they can help shift him on as it is in their interest too. He has no future with us.”

Even though the Reds are new under new management, it seems highly unlikely that Cummings has a future at the City Ground.

When called upon last season he rarely looked up to scratch and yet another failed loan move hasn’t done anything to suggest he is Championship quality.

Cummings has proved previously during his career that he knows where the back of the net is; although there is enough to suggest that an attitude problem could be hampering his progress.

It seems unlikely that Forest will get a club to pay a fee for the talisman and it could leave Cummings facing an uncertain future should the Reds cancel his contract.
