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."

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
