Nottingham Forest reportedly made a late attempt to prise Scott Twine away from MK Dons during the transfer deadline day in January.

The Reds were knocked back in their attempts but he’s likely to remain on the radar for the summer.

Twine signed for MK Dons during last summer’s transfer window and he’s been busy catching the eye.

During 2021/22 he’s scored 15 goals and registered 12 assists, typically operating in the hole behind a striker.

Last night, he was showcasing his serious potential. The Dons lost some serious ground on the top two in League One with a 3-2 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Twine did catch the eye though; smashing in a ridiculously good free-kick from comfortably 35 yards out.

It was a stunning goal and one which deserved to earn his team more than a narrow defeat to a promotion rival.

Twine is only 22-years-old and it seems certain that he will leave the club during the summer transfer window.

Several Championship clubs are likely to be interested in the attacking midfielder and the youngster ticks lots of boxes.

Steve Cooper and Dane Murphy have a vested interest in signing younger players with significant sell-on value and that sums Twine up nicely.

Forest have to make a move for Twine this summer

The youngster would be a wonderful addition to the Reds ranks this summer.

He is unlikely to cost a fortune and as a youngster, he’s exactly the type of player that would be welcomed by Forest fans.

Twine works hard, shows a willingness to get on the ball and clearly, he’s capable of scoring all different types of goals.

Brennan Johnson could leave the club this summer if the Premier League comes calling once more.

As a result, a replacement will need to be sought and that could lead the Forest recruitment team to Twine.
