Former Forest striker Nigel Jemson isn’t sure that a move to the Premier League right now is best for the attacker, telling This is Futbol: “Any youngster in the game wants to play as high as he can, no matter who they are, and they want to test themselves and compete with the best.
“So, on that note, I’m sure Brennan wants to go to the Premier League, now is it the right time for him? Possibly not.
