Nottingham Forest will launch a bid to sign Max Lowe on a permanent deal at the end of the season, according to The Star.
The Reds took the ex-Derby defender on loan in August and he’s proved an integral part of the Forest team this season.
Lowe hasn’t really made the grade at Sheffield United and they now have plenty of left-sided options.
United have the left-back tied down to a contract until 2024 but it would seem as though they’d be open to a sale.
Lowe missed eight games with a groin strain around Christmas but in the 20 appearances he has made, he’s been largely brilliant.
Now, the Reds will launch an assault on United to sign the 24-year-old who is ineligible to face his parent club on Friday.
Lowe arrived at Sheffield United in a double signing along with Jayden Bogle.
He’s never really pinned down a regular place in the team and has been restricted to just 11 outings for the Blades.
Lowe came through the youth ranks at Derby and made 48 appearances for the Rams.
The youngster has clearly enjoyed his football at Forest and he’d surely welcome a permanent deal.
Forest should move heaven and earth to sign Lowe
At 24, Lowe fits the profile of a player that both Steve Cooper and Dane Murphy would sign.
The Reds aren’t exactly blessed with an abundance of options at left-back either, with Lowe the only recognised option.
Jack Colback will likely fill in on Friday, with Gaetan Bong seemingly now out of the picture under Cooper.
Lowe’s days at Sheffield United do seem numbered and as a result, Forest must act during the summer transfer window.
