Forest need to add some extra quality to their defence and after the release of Gonzalo Jara, adding a right-back like Nathan Thompson could be the extra boost they need. Thompson has had a superb season with Swindon Town, the club he’s represented all his career and his fine displays have attracted attention from Leeds United and Peterborough United in the past few weeks.

The 23-year-old is as capable going forward as he is defending, the only stumbling block for a deal is that Swindon boss Mark Cooper admitted it would take “an awful lot of money” to prise Thompson away from the League One club. He would be excellent competition for Eric Lichaj and even could compete for the left-back spot with Danny Fox should Pearce move Chris Cohen back into midfield.
