Nottingham Forest were linked with a move for MK Dons attacker Scott Twine in January and yesterday he scored four times in a 5-0 win over Plymouth.

The Reds were thought to be monitoring the 22-year-old closely, although it wasn’t anticipated a bid would be made for the versatile forward.

Twine reached a milestone with his quartet of strikes yesterday. He has hit 20 goals for the Dons going into the play-offs and has also claimed 13 assists.

One of the player’s goals was a trademark free-kick, his fifth of the 2021/22 campaign and it proved the catalyst for the stunning victory.

MK Dons will have to go through the play-offs to win promotion to the Championship and will face Wycombe in the semi-final for a place at Wembley Stadium.

Regardless of what league MK Dons are in next season, it looks unlikely that Twine will remain in their ranks with interest likely to be rife.

Forest are in the mix to add him to their ranks and other Championship clubs will be sniffing around Twine.

At 22, he has a really bright future ahead of him. As a result, whoever signs him will get themselves a player with serious potential.

Forest have to consider Twine

The MK Dons man could be a player for Forest to get tied down ahead of his best years regardless of the division they find themselves in.

His goals yesterday were brilliant his trademark free-kicks are proving a thing of real beauty.

Forest will have a couple of shortlists on the go at the moment. One will identify players should they win promotion; the other will have names capable of doing a job in the Championship.

Twine might find his name lodged in between both and Forest fans would certainly welcome another talented youngster at the club.
