Scottish outfit St Johnstone could be about to make a move for Nottingham Forest striker Jason Cummings, according to the Evening Telegraph.

Boss Sabri Lamouchi has deemed Cummings surplus to requirements and the Scot is set to depart this summer.

Last season he had two loan spells with Peterborough United and Luton Town, scoring nine goals and registering six assists.

Since signing for the Reds in 2017 for £1 million (Sky Sports) his career has taken a nosedive.

The 23-year-old scored four goals in 17 outings for the Reds, failing to impress ex-boss Mark Warburton sufficiently to hold down a regular place in the team.

Ex-Forest goalkeeper Tommy Wright is in charge at St Johnstone and he is keen to raid his former club to sign the talisman.

Cummings netted for the Forest Under-23s during a 2-1 defeat to Mansfield Town last night.

The Seat Pitch Summary

The charismatic striker might leave Forest and reflect on what could have been.

 

When he first arrived at the City Ground he showed flashes of promise but has seemingly struggled with an application problem.

At Peterborough last season he looked as though he might tear League One to pieces, scoring seven goals before the end of August.

He didn’t net for them again though and his loan stint was terminated at Christmas.

At Luton, he didn’t play much, scoring twice during substitute appearances and now his career is at a crossroads.

A move back to Scotland looks like being a good one for Cummings. He is clearly a decent player on his day, but Forest haven’t seen it whatsoever.

The sooner the striker is off the wage bill at Forest the better and a move to St Johnstone would be good for all parties.
