Nottingham Forest are said to be putting together a “new-look recruitment team” as the summer transfer window comes into view.

Transfer talk

Nottingham Forest have been linked with League One duo Dion Charles and Josh Ruffels ahead of the summer transfer window.

Boss Chris Hughton will get his first real chance to make his mark on the Reds squad in the coming months, after taking charge last October.

Once the campaign comes to a close against Preston North End this weekend, his aim will be to assemble a group capable of challenging for the Championship play-offs, having scraped their way to safety this time around.

Decision explained

Boss Chris Hughton has explained Nottingham Forest’s decision to sell Marcus McGuane to Oxford United.
