Nottingham Forest Eager To Re-sign Newcastle Defender Jamal Lascelles

Newly-promoted Premier League side Nottingham Forest considering a move for the Toon skipper to bolster their backline ahead of a long-awaited top-flight return.

It was Newcastle who poached the then 20-year-old from Forest in a double deal with Karl Darlow in 2014.

The duo were immediately loaned back to the Championship outfit before Lascelles stamped his mark on Tyneside during a notable debut 2015-16 season.

During the latter stages of that relegation campaign, Lascelles - a novice in the side - earned respect among supporters for delivering a bold, no-holds-barred post-match interview following a 3-1 defeat to Southampton. It was his straight-talking, bullish attitude and leadership skills that led Rafa Benitez to make the centre-back captain at 22-years-old.

However, Lascelles has found himself on the outer at Newcastle under manager Eddie Howe.

Kieran Trippier is already touted by many Toon supporters as the natural successor to take over the armband if and when Lascelles departs.
