Sam McCallum could be on his way to the Championship with a number of sides interested in securing his signature.
Nottingham Forest are one of many sides in the Championship interested in signing Coventry City defender Sam McCallum, according to the Express and Star, although the player himself has admitted that he’s just focussing on his football at Coventry for the time-being.
The left-back only made his debut for the Sky Blues last season, but has already established himself as a key first-team player in Mark Robins’ side. This goes to show what kind of impact he has made.
And it seems that his impressive performances have not gone unnoticed with the Express and Star claiming that Forest were keen to lure McCallum to the City Ground as they plot a Premier League promotion push under the management of Sabri Lamouchi.
West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa, Leeds United and Huddersfield Town are all also believed to have had an eye on the youngster.
‘Obviously still a dream’
For the time-being though, McCallum doesn’t seem to be paying the speculation much attention.
“Playing in the Premier League is obviously still a dream,” he told Kent Online.
“If I went all the way it’d be so big for me because I’m one of those millions of kids who have wanted it.
“But at the moment I’m focusing on trying to get the starting position at Coventry and then see where it goes from here. I’m definitely living the dream.”
Having mainly been utilised at left-back, McCallum would certainly add some competition to the Forest squad. Lamouchi already has Jack Robinson and Yuri Ribeiro to choose from in that position, but McCallum is certainly one for the future.
That being said, he still has two-and-a-half years left on his current deal, and wouldn’t be available on the cheap.
