Nicky Hogarth is close to sealing a move to the English Championship, with Nottingham Forest said to be putting the finishing touches on a two-year deal for the former Cowdenbeath goalkeeper (DR).

Hogarth is a free agent after his exit from Rangers this summer. He spent last season on loan in Scottish League Two with Cowdenbeath and the keeper’s form with the ‘Blue Brazil’ has caught the attention of Nottingham Forest.

There have been several English clubs tracking Hogarth but it’s Nottingham Forest who look likely to sign him. The 20-year-old has also had spells with League Two Stirling Albion and Lowland League club Caledonian Braves.

 

Hogarth would join up with the U23s squad at Nottingham Forest before fighting for a place as number one in the coming years. This move would represent a significant jump from part-time football in League Two last season for the youngster.
