Magpies Linked To In-Form Championship Star

Newcastle and Fulham have been linked with January bids for Nottingham Forest’s in-form winger Joe Lolley.

The 26-year-old has been in fantastic form for Forest in the Championship and played a key role in the incredible 5-5 draw at Aston Villa on Wednesday night.

The ex-Huddersfield Town player scored a screamer and had four assists – taking his season’s tally to six goals and seven assists.

And Forest could make a ten-fold profit on Lolley, who has proved a bargain since arriving at the City Ground in January for £450,000.

The Mirror claim Newcastle and Fulham are considering offering him a swift return to the top flight, but Watford, Cardiff City and West Brom have also been linked to him this week.

Lolley, who can play on the left or right, started in Forest’s 3-1 Carabao Cup second-round win over Newcastle in August.
