Sky Bet Championship club Nottingham Forest are being linked with a move for Gillingham midfielder Josh Wright according to the Nottingham Post.

The 27-year-old Bethnal Green born midfield ace has a little over 12 months remaining on his current deal at Priestfield and the player has impressed for the Kent club this season.

It has been reported that new Nottingham Forest boss Mark Warburton is an admirer of Wright and the Londoner is said to have sent scouts to watch the player in action in recent weeks with The Reds considering a summer move for the midfielder.

Warburton has recently held talks with close friend and Forest director of football Frank McParland over potential summer transfer targets with the pair hoping to bring a much improved campaign to The City Ground in 2017/2018. It is believed that Gillingham midfielder Wright may have been one of those players which have been discussed by Warburton and McParland.

Wright started his career on the books of Charlton Athletic but the midfielder made just two appearances for The Addicks and enjoyed spells with Scunthorpe United, Millwall and Leyton Orient prior to joining current club Gillingham for the second time in his career in August 2015 on a short term deal which was later made permanent. The player has gone on to add 85 appearances to his Gills tally in addition to the eight appearances made during a loan spell at Priestfield in 2009 while Wright has bagged 13 goals for the Kent club.
