Nottingham Forest are reportedly interested in signing Blackpool forward Jerry Yates, according to Football Insider.

Yates has been in fine form for Blackpool in League One this season, after joining the club on a permanent deal from Rotherham United in the summer.

The 24-year-old has scored 16 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions – 14 of those goals have come in 33 League One outings.

Football Insider claim that Yates is attracting glances from Forest, Blackburn Rovers and Bristol City, though, with the forward said to be valued at a price of around £2million.
