Peterborough United have announced the signing of striker Jason Cummings on a season long loan deal from Nottingham Forest.

Jason Cummings joins Peterborough United for the 2018/19 season, becoming their thirteenth signing of the transfer window. Cummings scored 4 goals in 17 for Nottingham Forest in the first half of last season. He spent the second half of the season on loan with Rangers, scoring 6 in 18.

The club announced the deal on the club website, and manager Steve Evans has thanked the board for sanctioning the purchase. Evans said: “The board have once again given me wonderful support. When you consider we are paying full wages for Jason, recognition must be given”.

The Scotland international was prolific in his time in Scotland with Hibernian, scoring an impressive 71 in 138 in four years at Easter Road.

The 22 year-old was linked with a return to Ibrox this summer after enduring a successfully spell with Rangers in the second half of last season.

This latest signing for Posh could be a sign that star striker Jack Marriott is nearing the exit door at London Road. It was reported here on The72 that Posh manager Steve Evans had had dinner with Aitor Karanka, further enhancing links between Forest and Marriott.

The relationship between the club, which was already strong after past transfer dealing between the two over Britt Assombalonga, has been strengthened by the latest deal, and Forest are likely to use it to their advantage as they look to beat Bristol City and rivals Derby County to the signature of 33-goal Marriott.
