The Derry City youngster recently had a week-long trial at the City Ground and says he would be delighted to sign a professional deal in England.

McLaughlin will have a medical in Nottingham on Tuesday and it has been reported that Forest will pay around £200k plus add-ons for his signature.

He told the Londonderry Sentinel: "It has been a long couple of weeks, not knowing what was going to happen, but hopefully now everything will be sorted out.

"If I get the opportunity to sign for Forest then yes I'll be over the moon. Who wouldn't be delighted?

"I enjoyed my trial with Forest. It's a massive step up from League of Ireland, because there are better players, better facilities and better training."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
