Forest Monitoring Ferdinand

I am going to admit right away,no this isn't Rio, or even Anton. This is their 18 year old cousin Kane who plays for Southend.

Kane is being monitored by a number of Championship clubs after impressing for the Shrimpers. According to Sky Sports clubs are on high alert after he turned down the offer of a new contract. Ferdinand is still only on a scholarship contract,and if he hasn't signed professional terms by next month, he can leave the club on a free.

It's good to see Forest are chasing young talent from further down the league structure for the future. All our signings lately have been for the here and now. Ferdinand is an Ireland Under 19 international.
