Reds turned down Mag­pies’ bid for Grant

Nottingham Post - - SPORT -

NOT­TING­HAM For­est look to have turned down a loan bid for Jorge Grant from Notts County.

The 24-year-old at­tack­ing mid­fielder has just re­turned to the City Ground af­ter hav­ing a sea­son­long loan at Lu­ton Town cut short and he played for the Reds’ Un­der-23s side on Fri­day, pic­tured.

Mag­pies owner Alan Hardy has re­vealed on Twit­ter that Notts asked For­est about sign­ing Grant, which would give their rel­e­ga­tion bat­tle in League Two a ma­jor boost, and sug­gested he was told the young­ster will be go­ing to a League One club.

Re­spond­ing to a plea to sign Grant, who has al­ready en­joyed two suc­cess­ful loan spells at Meadow Lane, Hardy wrote: “We’ve asked and he’s go­ing to L1 ap­par­ently”.

Grant helped Notts reach the League Two play-offs semi-fi­nals last sea­son, scor­ing 15 goals.
