Many Nottingham Forest fans have discussed Matty Cash’s future at the club after January links to Italian side AC Milan.
22-year-old full-back Cash has been arguably one of the Championship’s top performers this season, contributing to Sabri Lamouchi’s side with three goals and four assists in his 39 appearances.
Cash, who originally started in the Forest setup in central midfielder, has now reverted to playing at right back, and his performances have more than impressed.
Linked with a move to Italian side Milan in January, Cash also drew the attention of West Ham United – leading to both sides making a reported offer.
The youngster, who is a product of Forest’s impressive academy system, remained at the club despite the potential of playing at a higher standard, and he recently opened on the matter in an interview with Sky Sports.

Speaking about discussions with his agent over Milan’s interest, Cash said: “My agent had a few chats with me. There were a few conversations but I had a job to do at the time and a few games to focus on. But I heard about it, yeah!”
Reacting to Cash’s latest comments, Football League World’s Ben Crump opted to quiz Forest fans on the future of the defender via Facebook group Nottingham Forest Crew Fans, asking: “Matty Cash has opened up about links to AC Milan, do you think we can keep him past the summer?”, and below are some of the responses.
Paul Brooks: If we can get promotion, yes, if not, not so sure
Eddie Salisbury: If enough money is on the table, he will go simple…
Nathan Wakeman: If we go up yes, if not no
Sam Reavley: If we do not go up he is gone in any case
Scott Markham: I love Cashy, but if AC Milan offer £25m I would take it or swap him with Rafa Leao plus £5m
Danny Boyes: Any Forest player will be sold if the money is right, we always have
Jon Hendren: If we get promotion yes, if not, no brainer
James Stringer: He’s a brilliant player but if the season is null and void and we start next season in the Championship there’s not a chance in hell we will keep him
Paul Keeling: You are all forgetting our owner has money, and Olympiacos always in the Champions League. When we go up half the squad we have now won’t stay, but Matty Cash will
Bradley Simmons: If he does go, do hope we have him till end of the season, would have loved to have him in the Premier League. Could have probably demanded £40m
