Sky Bet Championship side Nottingham Forest have put a £1 million price tag on the highly-rated forward Jamie Paterson, the Sun reports.
The 24-year-old is currently on loan at fellow Championship side Huddersfield Town, and it is believed that the Terriers will have to fight it out with fellow Championship outfit Brentford for the forward’s signature in the summer.
Whilst on loan at Huddersfield, the Coventry-born man has featured in 24 games, scoring five and claiming three assists. By far his best moment at the John Smith’s Stadium was the 5-0 victory over struggling Charlton Athletic, where he grabbed a goal and an assist, winning man-of-the-match in the process.
Paterson has been an important part of the Terriers’ campaign, helping them to 15th place, with 38 points in 32 games this season.
During the 2013-14 season, after signing for Forest from Walsall, he scored 12 goals from his 39 appearances, including a hat-trick in the 5-0 victory over West Ham United in the third round of the FA Cup.
Paterson scored 15 goals in 94 games for the League One side, before netting nine times in his 54 Forest appearances so far.
The Sun has also reported that the club had the chance to buy Paterson for £350,000, but that expired.
