Kevin Nolan: 'Notts County in strong position to sign Jorge Grant and Ryan Yates if up for sale'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has suggested that Notts County would be in a strong position to sign Jorge Grant and Ryan Yates should Nottingham Forest put the duo up for sale.

The two youngsters are on loan at Meadow Lane, having moved over the Trent with Mark Warburton's blessing, and have been instrumental in helping the Magpies surge up the League Two table over the last few months.

However, Forest's decision to sack Warburton has led to concerns of a new manager at the City Ground potentially wanting to make use of Grant and Yates, thus recalling them from their loan stints, or even sell them.

Nolan expressed his hopes of being able to hang on to the pair and, if they are put on the transfer list, claimed that Notts may have an advantage over other teams due to having been a great place for them to prosper.

“(Grant and Yates) are thriving and that’s the main thing,” he told the Nottingham Post.

“They will go back to Forest in the summer with lots of confidence which is why you go out on loan.

“You go back to your parent club a different player and you then hope the management team sees that.

“If it’s not meant to be over there then I am hoping we are the club they choose to come to.

“I feel we are in a strong position in that sense but that will be down to Nottingham Forest to make the decision.

“We can’t force that issue. All we can do is have a duty of care for these boys and to Nottingham Forest to make sure we are doing everything we can to look after them.

“Hopefully they can see that because we have a lot of respect for them over the road.

“We want to build a relationship because in a year’s time, who knows, we could be talking about other players thriving in this environment.”
