Dion Charles and Nottingham Forest: What’s the latest news?

Published

on

Chris Hughton is in the process of rebuilding his Nottingham Forest squad ahead of the 2021/22 Championship campaign.

The Reds have recently bid farewell to seven players at the end of their contracts, with Michael Dawson, Sammy Ameobi and Yuri Ribeiro among those to depart.

With five loan players returning to their parent clubs and four others being told to find new clubs, a busy summer is now underway.

It is no secret, either, that Hughton will look to bolster his attacking options this summer, after they scored only 37 goals in 46 matches this season.

One player who have they been linked with is Dion Charles from Accrington Stanley, but what is the latest on that front?

21 things every Nottingham Forest fan should know about their club, so can you score 100% on this?

In what year were Nottingham Forest founded?

The Athletic reported in early May that Charles was on Forest’s radar, after a hugely impressive season in front of goal for Accrington.

The 25-year-old scored 19 goals in 42 League One appearances this term, and is believed to be a target for the Reds this summer.

Newly-promoted Hull City were also interested, but the Tigers have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign the Northern Ireland international, as his price tag could be too expensive.

Accrington are said to be demanding over £1million for the forward, who joined from Southport in the summer of 2019.

From a Forest perspective, there is yet to be any further developments on Charles, as Hughton continues to assess targets and look to bring in new players.

Rotherham United are also said to have joined the race for the striker, who is likely to attract further interest between now and the start of next season.
