Nottingham Forest are considering a summer move for Peterborough United winger Marcus Maddison, as per a report by Sportslens.
The Championship side are preparing for a big summer ahead with plenty of comings and goings expected as Aitor Karanka looks to put his own stamp on his newly inherited squad.
Peterborough United’s Marcus Maddison is a reported target and he has two years left on his current deal at London Road. However, he does apparently have a release clause of £2 million, with Forest are considering matching.
Maddison, who is 24 years-old, joined Peterborough United in 2014 from non-league side Gateshead. He has been a key payer for the League One side ever since and has played over 150 games for them.
He was born in Durham and joined Newcastle United as a youngster. He was loaned out to Blyth Spartans in 2012 to gain some first-team experience but was then released by 2013 and joined Scottish side St Johnstone. He spent six months with the Scotttish Premier League side before he was released again and signed for Gateshead.
Peterborough United are known to sign talent from non-league and give them a chance in their first-team. Signing Marcus Maddison from Gateshead in 2014 is a great example of this and they could be set for a very tidy profit on him in the summer, if Championship outfit Nottingham Forest do make a move.
