Britt Assombalonga has urged Nottingham Forest boss Stuart Pearce to try and sign Tom Ince in a bid to help get his side’s promotion charge back on track.
The former Forest hero enjoyed a brilliant start to life back at the City Ground, guiding his team to 17 points from their opening seven games but things have gone downhill since then and a run of seven matches without a win has seen them drop out of the play-off places.
One of the main reasons for Forest’s struggles has been their inability to find the net, with summer signings Assombalonga and Michail Antonio bagging the majority of their goals and their problems have seen them to move out to 14.00 to win the Championship.
Ince himself moved clubs in the off-season, joining Hull from Blackpool but has struggled to earn a regular place at the KC Stadium and it’s now being suggested that he could be sent out on loan to ensure his development doesn’t stagnate.
Next up for Forest, who are 4.00 to be promoted, is Saturday’s trip to Huddersfield and the striker believes the former Liverpool youngster could really add something to the side, urging his boss to try and complete the deal.
“He is a good player, I can’t say anything else, because he is a good player,” he said in an interview with the Nottingham Post.
“Time will tell what happens, but if he comes in it will be a good thing. It is up to the manager what he wants to do. He knows what is best for the club.”
