Nottingham Forest are thought to be interested in Scott Twine and after last night, his valuation might have increased.

The Reds’ interest was claimed during the month of January and he’s kicked on at MK Dons in the second half of the season.

Twine has scored 16 goals and claimed 13 assists this season and last night he was crowned as the League One Player of the Year.

The youngster fought off competition from Barry Bannan of Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham striker Michael Smith to claim the award.

Naturally, Twine was always going to be in the mix given his astonishing haul of goal contributions.

Those have come whilst playing as a number 10; although the player can also operate as a left-winger or as a striker.

Twine is set for a bright future in the game and it seems unlikely that he’ll remain at MK Dons next season; regardless of the division they’re playing in.

The 22-year-old looks like a useful player and given his age he still has bags of potential to realise.

Forest are likely to be one of a number of clubs closely monitoring Twine. He’ll hope to finish the campaign by helping the Dons into the Championship.

Twine would be superb Forest signing

Managing 29 goal contributions is no mean feat for a player who is still relatively inexperienced.

Twine comes alive around the penalty area. Indeed, if he’s not scoring goals, he’s producing a moment of magic to set other players up.

The youngster is by no means the finished article but he would certainly tick a lot of boxes from a Forest perspective.

He fits the mantra of what Dane Murphy looks for in a signing, whilst Steve Cooper also favours working with a younger type of player.

Twine will have many clubs casting flirtatious glances in his direction but Forest should place themselves right in the mix to sign him.
