Peterborough United loanee Jason Cummings could return to parent club Nottingham Forest next month according to reports by Nottinghamshire Live.
The 23-year-old Edinburgh-born frontman joined The Posh in July on a season-long loan deal for the remainder of the campaign but has struggled for game time in recent weeks.
The terms of Cummings’ loan deal is thought to include an option for parent club Forest to recall the former Hibernian star if he is not a regular starter during his time at The ABAX Stadium. With the striker currently out of favour, The Reds boss Aitor Karanka could consider a recall for Cummings in January.
It is believed that Peterborough United could also have their say on the deal. Manager Steve Evans is expected to sit down with director of football Barry Fry and club owner Darragh MacAnthony to discuss both January transfer targets and loan deals later this month. The immediate future of loanee Cummings could be one of the topics on the agenda.
Cummings has made 21 appearances in all competitions for Peterborough United so far this season while he has scored seven goals. Just one of those goals have come in his last 15 outings for the club while he has commonly been used as a substitute of late.
The Scot is currently mid-way through a three-year deal at parent club Forest after joining the club from Ladbrokes Premiership outfit Hibernian in summer 2017 for an undisclosed fee.
