Jamie Paterson: Nottingham Forest poised to sign the 21-year-old

Forest agreed a fee with Walsall for Paterson last week and they look to have fended off interest from the likes of Middlesbrough, Huddersfield and Peterborough to land the 21-year-old.

All three clubs are believed to have expressed an interest in the player, but Forest are confident of bringing the 21-year-old to the City Ground.

Forest chief Billy Davies is keen to improve his side's creativity in wide areas and sees Paterson as a key addition to his squad for next season.

Paterson is believed to have agreed a three-year deal at Forest and is on the verge of becoming the club's third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Eric Lichaj and Gonzalo Jara.
