Sky Sports News reports Nottingham Forest goalkeeping coach Tim Flowers has urged the bright young talent Karl Darlow to ignore speculation surrounding his future, following links to Premier league clubs.
It has been reported over the last few weeks that Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are keeping a keen eye on ‘keeper Darlow.
In an interview with Sky Sports News, coach Flowers commented on the speculation saying:
”Depending on how the jersey pans out in pre-season, he’s got a chance to play first team football.
You see a lot of lads his age who move to clubs and don’t play – absolute waste of time.”
Flowers also added the City ground is ”The right place for his development”.
The 23-year old goalkeeper played 43 league games for Forest last season after making his full league debut as recently as January 2013 in a 2-1 win over Peterborough.
The former Newport and Walsall loanee seems to be first choice again for the upcoming Sky Bet Championship season with Forest who also have Dorus de Vries and Dimitar Evtimov battling for the number one jersey with Darlow.
