Nobody needs reminding of Nottingham Forest’s struggle last season where it took them until the final day to steer officially clear of relegation down to League One.
But a new season brings new optimism and the Forest fans are expecting much better things, with a top-half finish probably the end goal.
Manager Mark Warburton has been working hard to bring new faces in, one of which is Barrie McKay who worked under Warburton during his time at Rangers.
Another man that Forest should definitely look at bringing to the City Ground is Bournemouth midfielder Emerson Hyndman.
Hyndman, like McKay, also worked under Warburton during a spell on loan at Rangers where he impressed from central midfield.
Warburton was rumoured to be interested in visiting the possibility of bringing Hyndman to Forest but he may have to move quickly, if he is to get his man due to inevitable interest.
The 21-year-old is no stranger to the Championship with 25 appearances already to his name for former employers Fulham, who were paid a compensation fee when Hyndman moved on to Bournemouth.
The American will surely be ready to fight for a first-team place at Bournemouth, but with strong competition including the likes of Harry Arter, one begins to question how much playing time Hyndman would actually get.
There is next to no chance of a permanent deal being done between the Cherries and Forest, but a loan deal could be a likely outcome and one that would benefit both parties.
