Nottingham Forest striker Jason Cummings has “become a problem” according to Peterborough United director of football Barry Fry, reports the Peterborough Telegraph.
Cummings moved to the League One club on a season-long loan back in the summer but after a brilliant start to life at London Road has quickly faded and has now become a burden.
“Jason has become a problem,” Fry said.
“MK Dons and Lincoln have shown an interest in taking him, but he doesn’t want to drop into League Two.
“There are also Scottish club chasing him, but Jason also doesn’t want to move back up there, even though he’s spending all of his time there at the moment.
“I am speaking to Forest to see if they can help shift him on as it’s in their interests as well. He has no future with us.”
The former Hibernian striker has scored six goals this season, all of which came during August, earning him the first League One player of the month award of the season.
Since then, however, he has been bumped down the pecking order by Matty Godden and Ivan Toney with the odd substitute appearance his only outings.
The 23-year-old has not even made the squad the Posh’s last two league outings against Rochdale and Luton Town.
It remains to be seen what new Forest boss Martin O’Neil plans to do with the troublesome forward.
Cummings clearly needs to change his attitude and change it quickly if he is to be a success in the game.
He showed in August just how good he can be but as soon as things go against him he seems to lose his way as well as allowing his personal life to affect his professional life.
He is a terrific character so it would be a shame to see this season just fade out.
