Nottingham Forest have turned down multiple loan and permanent enquiries for Brennan Johnson, according to Football Insider.
Johnson has gone from strength to strength out on loan this season, playing an influential role in Lincoln City’s promotion push.
The Imps are 90 minutes away from Championship football after they defeated Sunderland 3-2 on aggregate in the play-off semi-finals, and face Blackpool in Sunday’s final.
The Wales international has scored 13 goals in all competitions this season, producing a number of assists for Michael Appleton’s side.
Can you name the Nottingham Forest player who has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
Johnson is believed to be attracting interest from the likes of Leeds and Burnley heading into the summer, after an impressive campaign in League One.
But according to Football Insider, Forest’s stance on Johnson is clear, as they have turned down multiple loan and permanent enquiries for the 19-year-old.
Chris Hughton is eyeing up Johnson for a key role in the first-team next season, as he looks to add more attacking inspiration to his side.
Forest only scored 37 goals in 46 Championship matches this season, and the Reds were one of the lowest scorers in the division.
Here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions to this transfer update regarding Johnson…
