Bristol Rover striker Tom Nichols is set for a move away from The Memorial Stadium today, as the forward is undergoing a medical with League Two side Cheltenham Town.
BBC reporter Alistair Durden was the first to report the news, as Nichols is set for a loan move to the League Two club where he will get the required minutes to keep up his fitness.

The striker joined the club in the summer of 2017 but he has struggled during his time at The Memorial Stadium, only netting nine goals in 117 appearances as he struggled to make an impact with the Pirates.
The confidence-stricken forward hasn’t featured since the 2-2 draw against Coventry City in the FA Cup on 5th January, and earlier on this month, manager Ben Garner informed the striker that he was free to leave north Bristol.

With the striker’s contract up in the summer, it now looks as if the striker is set for a move away today, and it also looks like he has played his final game in the blue and white quarters.
Garner added to his attacking options yesterday, adding young Fulham striker Timmy Abraham on loan to the squad.
Nichols will be the first to admit that his spell at Rovers hasn’t gone as well as he would have liked.
His loan move to Cheltenham could allow him the environment to get his confidence back and reach his best form, something he did well when first bouncing onto the scene as a teenager with Exeter City.
