Brennan Johnson will return to Nottingham Forest in the summer and the club should try and bring one of his teammates from this season back with him.

Manchester City starlet Morgan Rogers has shone at Lincoln since the turn of the year and looks set for a bright future.

He has scored six goals and registered three assists during his time in League One and is rated highly by the Citizens.

Despite his stock rising at the Imps, it does seem unlikely that he will have done enough to earn a chance in Pep Guardiola’s team just yet.

As a result, another loan move could be in the offing and Forest should ready themselves to take advantage.

Who is he?

Rogers is a talented prospect who was snapped up by the Manchester City academy from West Bromwich Albion.

He’s played 25 games for the under-23s at the Etihad Stadium, scoring six goals.

Rogers has typically found himself playing in the left-wing under Michael Appleton and he’s enjoying the regular first-team opportunities.

In a recent game against MK Dons he claimed three assists during a 4-0 win and was incredible throughout.

What’s he good at?

The starlet is quick, has great feet and loves to drive at the opposition when he gets in control of the ball.

 

One aspect of his game that Forest could benefit from is his trickery and desire to put defenders on the back foot.

The Reds have struggled to make the ball stick in the final third this season. Having Rogers could help Chris Hughton bamboozle opposition defensive units next season.

Has he linked up well with Johnson?

The duo have linked up really well together and seem to enjoy playing alongside each other.

Rogers and Johnson have linked up together for five goal contributions at Lincoln and have developed a decent rapport.

It’s unclear yet where Hughton will fancy playing Johnson but he’s shown at Lincoln he can operate as a No.10.

That could leave the door open for someone else to come in out wide and why not Rogers.

What are the chances of City letting him leave?

It has to be said they’d almost certainly consider another loan move.

He won’t be getting game time at the Premier League champions elect next season at just 18.

With that in mind, they’d welcome the chance to get him out on loan and Championship football could prove ideal.

Forest will want to lower their average age of their squad. Rogers is exciting and he could quickly become a fan favourite at the City Ground.
