Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray appears to have let slip about Connor Mahoney’s next club.
Tony Mowbray is resigned to losing Connor Mahoney this summer for a mere compensation fee and has revealed that he might be moving to Nottingham Forest, according to BBC Sport.
Mowbray told BBC Radio Lancashire that he hopes Connor Mahoney gets plenty of football at Nottingham Forest and helps win promotion with them.
Blackburn were relegated from the Championship on the final day of the season with Nottingham Forest staying up on goal difference.
The Rovers look set to lose one of their prize youngsters in Connor Mahoney with a host of Championship sides and Celtic lining up a move.
The 20-year-old, who was sparingly used last year, impressed mainly during substitute cameos and now wants to leave Ewood Park.
Mahoney made eighteen appearances and stirred up excitement with his ability to use both feet, cut in or go down the line and produce quality crosses into the box from the wide areas.
The young winger is out of contract with Blackburn and was offered fresh terms but he looks set to leave.
Nottingham Forest will have to pay a compensation fee to Blackburn if they do tie up a deal for Connor Mahoney.
Tony Mowbray expects the starlet to leave and join Forest in the summer window and wishes him all the best.
