Nigel Jemson has warned Nottingham Forest fans may have to be patient with Josh Doig if the Championship club succeeds in signing the talented teen.
The 19-year-old left-back has made an impressive start to his career and already amassed 26 appearances in the Scottish Premiership.
Doig has been involved in five Hibernian fixtures so far this season and has been sought-after throughout the transfer window.
Would Doig be a success at Forest?
But Leeds are not the only side courting Doig, with Forest, Watford and Burnley also keen ahead of the window slamming shut next week.
Reports suggest Forest could even negotiate a loan deal with Burnley if Doig opts to complete a switch to Turf Moor.
Former City Ground favourite Jemson believes Doig has the potential to succeed at Forest and would be interested to see how quickly he adjusts to life in the Championship.
He exclusively told The Transfer Tavern: “He’s got good pedigree. He has been involved with the Scotland under-21s so there must be a player in there.
“Coming from Scotland down to England, is he going to take a bit of time to settle down or fly out of the blocks? We don’t know.”
