The Lowdown: Wood struggling for minutes
The New Zealander has found himself pushed down the attacking pecking order at St James’ Park this season, with Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson usually preferred when fit.
Now, it looks as though the 31-year-old could be offered a route out of Newcastle, following a fresh report.
The Latest: Forest keen on signing
That’s according to Football Insider, who claim that Forest are eyeing up a ‘surprise move’ for Wood, with manager Steve Cooper ‘keen’ to sign a striker.
It is believed that the Reds are looking at back loan and permanent moves for the attacker, whose current Magpies deal runs out at the end of next season.
The Verdict: Great January addition?
Goals have come at a premium for Forest this season, with only 15 scored in 19 league matches, so the acquisition of Wood could suddenly improve that weakness.
Would Pinamonti be a good signing for Forest?
Wood may not solve Forest’s attacking woes on his own but he would be a physical and experienced addition to Cooper’s squad, having been described as ‘exceptional’ by journalist Jordan Cronin last year.
