Nottingham Forest will look to speak with striker Glenn Murray on his comeback next season, according to a report by The Athletic.

The 37-year-old joined Brighton on a free transfer in January, signing a contract until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Murray struggled to make an impact on a loan at Watford in the first half of the season, but quickly cemented a starting role at Forest and sacked two goals in nine appearances until now.

The Reds look set to secure their place in the league for another season and manager Chris Hughton will likely start planning for the next term.

He knows firsthand how dangerous a Murray striker can be, after seeing the striker’s score 23 times as Brighton was promoted under his leadership in 2016/17.

According to Athletic, the East Midlands club will be holding talks on whether Murray will return for the 2021/22 season, with the forward still hungry to continue playing despite almost 40 years of age.

The 37-year-old has already 69 league goals to his name, a count that he hopes to extend considerably if he extends his stay at the City Ground.

The verdict

Murray has proven to be a very useful signing so far and as long as his demands aren’t too high, you think it would be wise for Forest to extend his stay.

It looks like the wheels are moving to do so, with this report indicating there will be talks about its future.

A forward trio of Lewis Grabban, Lyle Taylor and Murray is one that, on paper, would be the envy of many league managers, but they haven’t fired that tenure.

Hughton hopes that may change in the future.
