Parkin, who came through Chelsea’s academy as a youngster, now works as a pundit for a variety of media outlets. He made the comments about Cash after the 2-2 draw between Forest and West Brom on Saturday.

The 22-year-old scored the crucial equaliser for Sabri Lamouchi’s men in the first minute of injury-time at the Hawthorns.

After the match, the youngster shared on social media how delighted he was to grab his side a share of the spoils.

In response to the right-back’s goal, Parkin said on EFL on Quest TV, as transcribed by the Nottingham Post: “It’s a pleasure to be talking about him because he’s having an outstanding season.

“For a player who is a winger really by trade, playing at full-back, he’s brilliant going forward you can see he likes a tackle as well.

“It’s an outstanding touch and the finish is sublime (for the goal).”

According to WhoScored, Cash has made 30 starts and two substitute appearances in the Championship for Forest so far this season. He has scored three goals and provided four assists in the process.

Cash has won 91 tackles in the Championship. Only Swansea City’s Matt Grimes has won more (101) according to WhoScored.

During the 2018/19 campaign, Cash scored six goals and provided one assist in the league, but was regularly played further forward than he has been so far this season.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that the right-back was linked with a move to the Premier League in January.

The 22-year-old was linked with West Ham United, Southampton and AC Milan.

Forest weren’t tempted into doing business though. According to the Daily Mail, the Reds weren’t willing to do business at anything less than £18 million.
