Nottingham Forest are keeping tabs on Blackpool’s Jerry Yates as they prepare for another busy summer at the City Ground.
The 24-year-old has established himself as one of the top talents in League One, with his 18 goals firing the Tangerines into the play-off places, and they will believe they can win promotion.
However, a failure to go up could put them in a difficult position in terms of keeping hold of Yates, with Sun reporter Alan Nixon revealing that Forest are keen.
FOREST. In the list of clubs chasing Jerry Yates at BLACKPOOL. Plays anywhere across the front.

Even though he is playing in the third tier, most Forest fans recognise the talent that Yates has. And, given his age, he could turn out to be a shrewd investment in the long-term, whilst also being able to make an impact on Chris Hughton’s side next season, who will surely hope to be challenging for promotion.
Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Nottingham Forest appearances?
So, the reaction to this transfer update was positive, and here we look at some of the comments…

Young hungry and talented players who won't cost a fortune in wages. That's what we need. No stand out talents. (Knockhaert) just players who will fight

Just the sort of striker I'd love to see at Forest. https://t.co/5mEqhiZYYV

Jerry Yates is exactly the sort of player #NFFC should be looking to sign this summer. 18 ⚽️ and 4 🅰️ in League One so far this season and he's at an age where he could still get better. Shouldn't cost an outrageous amount either. pic.twitter.com/A5BnAoDx62

A young and hungry footballer with room to improve. What kind of revolutionary thinking is this.
