Notts County midfielder Jorge Grant has been revealed to be the deadliest man in League Two, with OptaJoe revealing on Twitter that the young star had been involved in more goals than any other player in the division this season.

The 22-year-old has had a hand in thirteen league goals this campaign, which includes nine goals and four assists.

On loan from city rivals Nottingham Forest, Grant has quickly established himself as one of the hottest prospects in the Football League, with his form seeing him linked with moves to Brentford, Bolton and Wigan by Football Insider.

Grant joined the Forest academy in 2013 having left Reading the year before, and made his competitive debut for the Reds in 2014.

This loan is his second with the Magpies, and Grant’s goals have helped to fire Kevin Nolan’s side to the summit of the fourth tier table.

Forest boss Mark Warburton will be keen to keep hold of the promising youngster, but with competition for places extremely high at the club, Grant could seek a permanent move away.

The Verdict

Grant impressed with County whilst on loan last season, but this term has really seen the player discover himself as a quality Football League midfielder.

Grant is pulling all the strings at Meadow Lane, and his form has been the primary factor in County’s magnificent rise up the league table.

A switch to a club like Brentford, where a number of Football League stars have developed to go on to become Premier League regulars, will appeal to the youngster, who will harbour aspirations of playing top flight football.

Continue at his current rate, and there will be a real battle for his signature in the summer.
