Nottingham Forest defender Djed Spence is wanted by Jamaica following his heroics at the City Ground this season, according to a report by The Athletic.

The Reds have witnessed brilliance with the 21-year-old this season. He has made 26 appearances in all competitions for Forest and interest in him is rife.

Arsenal, Tottenham, Inter and Roma are all thought to be keen on the right-back, with Middlesbrough looking set to receive a windfall.

Now, his services are being sought on the international front too. Spence qualifies for Jamaican with his parents being from there and the Caribbean club have made an approach.

WEIRDEST European January 2022 Transfers

England could come knocking too though to complicate matters. Lee Carsley is considering putting him in the England under-21 squad for next month’s European Championship qualifiers.

Spence will have to make a decision though. The Football Association have claimed that multinational players won’t be picked to prevent them from committing to another country.

The youngster has been a revelation this season. Eyebrows were raised when he was added to the ranks but he’s silenced his critics with a string of devastating displays.

His partnership with Brennan Johnson has been a joy to behold and next season he looks certain to be playing Premier League football.

Class: Spence is set for stardom with or without Forest

If Forest are promoted this season, they may have a small chance of keeping Spence. With the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham circling though, it will still be tough.

Now, choosing a club for next season might not be the only decision for Spence to make in the near future.

It would be a surprise if he chose to stick with England. Nothing against Spence but Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James could be the first choice options for 10 more years yet.

As a result, choosing to embark on an international career with Jamaica looks like a wise move.

Forest will hope that his performances continue to stay strong as the Reds close down a play-off place between now and the end of the season.
