According to an exclusive report from TEAMtalk, Forest Green Rovers defender Nathan McGinley is attracting several Championship sides.

The report states that Bristol City, Huddersfield Town, Nottingham Forest and Swansea City are the four second tier sides keen on bringing McGinley back to the Championship.

The defender was previously on the books at Middlesbrough, although he only made one appearance for his hometown club in his four years on Teesside. McGinley’s only game for Boro came earlier this season, as he played the full 90 minutes at left back in the Carabao Cup win over Notts County.

After impressing on loan at Forest Green at the start of last season, his move was made permanent in January 2019, joining for an undisclosed fee.

He played 38 games in League Two last season for Rovers, helping them to achieve a fifth placed finish in just their second year in the Football League. Having made the League Two Play Off Semi Finals, they lost out on a trip to the final at Wembley, after being defeated over two legs against eventual Play Off winners Tranmere Rovers.

McGinley is a versatile defender, and has played at right back, left back and even centre back in his short career as a professional footballer. He is still only 22 years old and if he was to move to a Championship side in the near future, they would be ultimately be paying for potential.
