Sky Bet Championship club Nottingham Forest are thought to be one of a number of clubs watching Harrow Borough midfielder Kurtis Cumberbatch according to the Mail Online.

The 21-year-old midfielder failed to make the grade as a youngster at both Watford and Charlton Athletic and dropped into non-league football in a bid to relaunch his career.

After spells with Chipstead, East Grinstead Town and Welling United, the player joined current club Harrow Borough on a short term deal in December and the youngster has made a positive impact at the Earlsmead Stadium despite the club’s struggles in the Ryman League.

It is believed that a number of English Football League clubs are considering offering Cumberbatch another chance in the professional game and Sky Bet Championship club Nottingham Forest are one of the clubs thought to be tracking the youngster. The Reds have an excellent record of developing young talent with a number of homegrown players having graduated into the first team in recent years and it is believed that Forest see Cumberbatch as someone with plenty of raw potential.

As well as Forest’s interest in Cumberbatch, it has been reported that Sky Bet League One pair Bristol Rovers and Oxford United are also weighing up moves for the player and there could be a battle for the youngster’s services.
