Nottingham Forest forward Jason Cummings says he is delighted to be a wanted man after joining Peterborough United on a season-long loan.

The 22 year-old suffered a frustrating season at Nottingham Forest last season after starting just seven Championship matches.

“Peterborough have wanted me for a long time,” Cummings said. “And when they came in for me again I thought this was the place I wanted to be.

“It’s nice to be wanted by a manager who will play me. I prefer playing in a two up top which is what this manager wants. I want to play games and start enjoying my football again.

“And I want to win promotion which is everyone’s aim at this club.

“It was tough last season. Mark Warburton signed me for Forest, but when he was sacked the new manager didn’t fancy me at all. I played out wide a bit for Forest which wasn’t ideal.

“I ended up on loan at Rangers which I loved even though I didn’t play much there. It was a great six months, the fans up there are unbelievable.

“I’m not taking anything for granted dropping down a division though. League One is tough. I’ll be taking it game by game. I am a confidence player and I want to score in every game.

“I’m glad the deal was done quickly. It’s only three weeks to the start of the season so it’s time I will use getting my fitness up and getting to know the lads.”
