Nottingham Forest striker Jason Cummings is in talks with Rangers over a permanent move, according to The Scotsman.

The 22-year-old has spent the latter part of this season on loan at the Scottish Premier League giants and has scored 6 goals in all competitions for them.

Cummings joined Nottingham Forest last summer from Hibernian for an undisclosed fee but he was allowed to leave them after just 7 months at the City Ground. They now look likely to sell him on this summer.

Cummings, who has made 2 caps for Scotland, played for Hearts and Hutchinson Vale as a youngster and signed for Hibernian in 2013. He broke into the Hibs first-team in the 2013/14 season but could not prevent Hibs from being relegated from the Scottish Premier League.

He found his feet in the Scottish Championship and scored 21 goals in his first season at that level, followed by 25 in his second campaign and then 23 in his final season at Easter Road to fire them back to the top flight at the third time of asking.

Cummings got into the Scottish Championship Team of the Year in the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons and also helped Hibs win the Scottish Cup in 2016. There is no doubt that he is proven in Scotland and will be a decent signing for Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

It will be a shame for Nottingham Forest fans that Cummings’ move has been unsuccessful. However, they are expected to be busy this summer in the transfer market.
