Reports on Sunday suggest Nottingham Forest are closing on the signing of former Bolton midfielder Sammy Ameobi.

Ameobi, who is available as a free agent, left Wanderers at the end of this past season after serving notice to terminate his contract as off-field issues saw players to unpaid since the end of February.

Split across a loan spell in 2016/17 and the last two years after moving to the University of Bolton Stadium on a permanent deal from Newcastle United, the 27-year-old made a combined total of 91 appearances for the Trotters - scoring 12 goals - but was often criticised for a lack of consistency shown on the pitch.

The Nottingham Post state Ameobi will be afforded another chance to resurrect his career at Championship level, however, with a deal expected to be finalised on Monday.
