Town Linked With Move for Forest Winger McKay
Thursday, 28th Jun 2018 16:18
Town are reported to have made an enquiry to Nottingham Forest regarding winger Barrie McKay.
According to Football Insider, the Blues have made an approach for the 23-year-old, who joined Forest from Rangers last summer for a fee of £500,000.
Forest are said to be open to offers for the Paisley-born wideman, who can also play up front. Earlier this month, the once-capped Scotland international, who is contracted until 2021, was strongly linked with a move to Greek side Olympiacos.
McKay, who had spells on loan at Greenock Morton and Raith Rovers while at Rangers having come through their youth ranks after a spell with Kilmarnock as a schoolboy, made 22 starts and four sub appearances for Forest last season, scoring five times, but was rarely involved after Aitor Karanka took over as boss from his former Ibrox manager Mark Warburton.
Blues boss Paul Hurst, who has cash at his disposal following the sale of Adam Webster, has said adding wingers to his squad is a priority having secured the signing of former Crawley man Jordan Roberts earlier today.

New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
