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."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?
