Nottingham Forest have agreed a deal to sign young Linfield forward Dale Taylor, according to reports from the Belfast Telegraph.
The Reds are likely to strengthen their squad in the summer, as they look to potentially make a long-awaited return to the Premier League this season.
But it seems as if Sabri Lamouchi is also planning for the future, with Forest set to lure an exciting prospect in Taylor over from Northern Ireland to the East Midlands, beating Derby and Leicester to his signature.
Have these 15 Forest players been capped at senior international level?
16-year-old Taylor is a Northern Ireland under-17 international, and has already scored one goal in four appearances for the side.
The young forward made his first-team debut for Linfield earlier this season, and grabbed his first senior goal not long after in a win over Cliftonville.
Linfield are set to lose two of their most promising talents in Taylor and Charlie Allen, who looks set to join another Championship side in Leeds United.
Managed by David Healy, the Northern Irish outfit will be hoping to continue nurturing these talents and developing as a youth setup.
Taylor looks to be an exciting prospect who could go on to have a really good career at Forest.
He’s obviously not ready to play in the first-team yet, but Forest’s academy is arguably one of the best in the country when you look at the players they’ve developed.
Matty Cash and Joe Worrall have been outstanding this season, and they’ve shown that hard work in the academy can get you far.
