Rumours Rated: The Imps main transfer rumours so far, discussed and rated


2nd – Jorge Grant

This link was almost inevitable in my opinion. I do know Grant came to look around at some point last season and was heavily linked with a move to us before going to Mansfield.

He tore up League Two in 2017/18 and, despite not featuring much for his loan clubs last season, saw one finish top (Luton) and the other fourth (Mansfield). According to Football League World, we’re now in with a shout of getting him again.

He’d be a good loan player for us. If we got the Jorge Grant of two years ago, he’d be tremendous. 12 months ago I was signing his praises, claiming the Luton move would see him excel and force his way in at Forest.

Dare I say, he was woefully under-used at Mansfield Town. I’m not a Flitcroft fan, as you’ll know, nor do I feel he made the best of a good squad. It’s easy to point to a player and say things like ‘lazy’ or ‘not committed’ when things haven’t gone well, but in a crucial match against us, Grant didn’t impress when I feel they needed a spark.

There is value here. It’s a deal I can see fitting a wage structure and one that I suspect could be revisited after last season. Of all the stories so far, this is the one I rate as most likely.


  1. What is the situation regarding our better loan players last season. O’Hara, McCartan and Rowe. Has the interest in them not been followed up?

  2. Coker i read elsewhere has just got married at the weekend maybe that has delayed things abit🤣

  3. I see that George Maris is leaving Cambridge. Danny and Jez George has a long old chat with him after the game at the Abbey Stadium…
