Lincoln City boss Michael Appleton has touched on the potential of Nottingham Forest recalling Tyler Walker from his loan spell.
Walker arrived at Lincoln last summer and the lively attacker has since netted an impressive 16 appearances, prompting heavy speculation that he could be on the verge return to his parent club Forest.
Forest are in desperate need of new striker to come in to the club after seeing Lewis Grabban maintain the role of lone forward all season with limited back up.
Spaniard Rafa Mir did arrive on loan last August, but he has now returned to Wolverhampton Wanderers and made a move back to his homeland with Huesca.
Walker began his career with Forest as a youngster in 2006 before making his official debut in 2015, and then going out on loan to no less than six clubs.
After scoring during Lincoln’s impressive 5-1 FA Cup win over Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday evening, his current boss Appleton was quizzed on his future.
Appleton told Lincolnshire Live as cited by Nottinghamshire Live: “At the minute he’s our player. I’m not expecting to be told any different but I’m never surprised.”
