There is nothing in the links between Nottingham Forest and MK Dons playmaker Scott Twine, according to The Guardian.

Forest were linked with a move for the former Swindon and Newport player earlier this week. Nottinghamshire Live were claiming the Reds were keeping tabs on the player.

Twine has enjoyed a stunning campaign in League One. His eight assists are the most of any player in the division and he’s also scored 11 goals.

The 22-year-old only signed for MK Dons in the summer. He checked in from Swindon on a free transfer after his contract expired.

Forest are still in the market for an attacker this month. Keinan Davis has already signed on loan, whilst Jed Wallace and Josh Bowler have both been linked.

Twine looks like being one name that won’t be joining this month. The Guardian claims that there is nothing in the links at this stage.

The youngster is certainly a player that Forest should be looking at. He is young, has bags of potential and is already one of the leading lights in League One.

Given that he only signed for MK Dons in the summer, perhaps luring him away from the club wouldn’t be simple this month anyway.

Former boss Michael Flynn is a big fan of Twine. He called him a ‘constant menace’ after his debut for the club, in which he scored.

Radar: Forest must continue monitoring the likes of Twine

There is typically some real gems in the lower leagues and Forest could benefit from watching their progress. Twine fits that bill as a player who could come into the City Ground with a young and hungry mentality.

Just because there is nothing in the links now, it doesn’t mean the club aren’t monitoring him. Certainly, the player fits the bill of a signing that both Dane Murphy and Steve Cooper would welcome at the club.

He is energetic, quick and crucially loves scoring goals and registering assists.

Twine was a popular link among Forest supporters. For now, the fan base might have to park their enthusiasm over the MK Dons star.
