Nottingham Forest right-back Matty Cash has been attracting interest from the Premier League with his performances so far this season.
It’s fair to say that the Reds have made a habit of allowing their better players to leave the club in recent years. Both Ben Osborn and Arvin Appiah departed the City Ground in the summer.
Before them, the likes of Karl Darlow, Jamaal Lascelles, Oliver Burke and Ben Brereton all also left the club before reaching their full potential.
There’s no doubt that under the club’s current ownership; no-one will leave unless it’s the right deal for the club.
Sabri Lamouchi has continued to utilise some of the club’s youth this season. He’s shown that he isn’t afraid to throw young players into the team.
One standout performer for the Reds so far this season has been Matty Cash. The 22-year-old broke into the team a few years ago; looking much-improved this season.
There’s no doubt that he has improved considerably at right-back. It’s, therefore, no surprise that he has recently been linked with a move to Premier League side Everton by The Sun.
Southampton and Crystal Palace are also said to be interested in trying to lure the youngster to the top flight.
It’s unlikely that the Reds would allow the right-back to leave midway through the season. He’s likely to be key to the club’s chances of securing promotion.
However, one of Forest’s Miracle Men, Kenny Burns, believes that the youngster might be tempted by a move to the Premier League. Speaking to the Nottingham Post, he said: “Whilst Forest are challenging right now; every player wants to play at the highest level and a move to the Premier League would be difficult to turn down for Cash.
“You don’t know how long your career will last and how many chances to play in the top division you’ll get.
“He’ll say he wants to stay and achieve that at the City Ground; the reality though, is that both parties would find it difficult to resist such a deal.”
