Boro consider move for out-of-contract Nottingham Forest forward
Reports have yet again linked Middlesbrough to another forward. This time around, they've been credited with the interest in signing one of Nottingham Forest's strikers.
Nottingham Forest have prepared themselves to allow Sammy Ameobi to leave the club in the summer transfer window, when his current deal expires at the end of this month. This was after Forest announced his release after two campaigns.
Middlesbrough are the latest side said to be interested in the 29-year-old who scored three goals and provided two assists in 32 Championship matches for Nottingham Forest in the just-completed season.
Ameobi had a loan spell with Boro during the 2012/13 season in his early twenties, when he was trying to get regular playing time at his parent club Newcastle United.
He has both Premier League and Championship experience and will surely have various offers from different clubs.

- Boro join Swansea City and West Brom in the race for recently released Sheffield United defender
Ameobi offers experience and considering that he is available for free, it could be a deal Neil Warnock can take a gamble on. However, nothing is certain now, and Boro fans may need to continue observing how their club moves in the transfer window.
