Everton warned off Forest's Johnson

| Friday, 24 March 2017  13 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton have reportedly been issued a "hands-off" warning by Nottingham Forest with regard to their interest in teenage starlet Brennan Johnson.

The Blues are said to be very keen on the 15-year-old midfielder, the son of former Forest striker David Johnson, but the Midlands club desperately want to keep him and the Mail suggest that the issue could go to an independent tribunal.

Hope we get him.

Anyone know anything about this kid? Considering our dearth of midfield options, we seem very keen on him.

Didn't Forest pull this shit with the lad who went to Newcastle?

Hi Oscar, yes. I live about 100 m from the City Ground stadium and every Forest fan friend of mine rates this kid very highly – unlike the owner, who has been described in many different and colourful ways, none of them flattering. His dad used to play for Forest not so long ago so to Forest fans he's seen as a homegrown Ross Barkley type. I'm pretty sure not only would he be a canny investment but, with the current climate around the club, he would probably be very much open to the idea – especially if his dad thinks it would be a good move for his son.

I think the owner is Fawah (or something like that) and is trying to sell the club; however, instead of freezing everything so any potential new owner would be clear on what they'd get for their money, he just seems intent on getting rid of as many 'assets' as soon as possible which makes us at bare minimum a much more grounded option and from what I've heard, I'm convinced he could be an excellent new addition.

I'll be in the pub tonight so let me know if there's anything else you want to know...

He's 15, Oscar, not likely to get a first team game any time soon.

Oh and the other thing and a bit off topic I read earlier today Oscar, apparently if it's true, it's only EPL clubs who can sign under-18s (maybe under-15s) on a professional contract which as the poster mentioned makes any club outside of the EPL easy pickings.

(If this is important it's probably a good idea to check the details yourself as I've been a bit preoccupied with the stadium stuff like everyone else.)

Dearth? We have a surfeit of great options, and another one coming back next year. Besides, he's 15.

Sarcasm, Mike.

Didn't come over, Oscar.

Oscar (#2), do you really mean 'dearth'? We have a plethora of options in midfield.

Oh well, if The Mail says it should go to a tribunal, a tribunal it is...

This youth recruitment is critical I feel for our future. Mix of kids and top talent.

His dad used to play accross the park. And had bad manners.
