The summer transfer rumour mill has linked Nottingham Forest striker Tyler Walker with a move to Mansfield Town.

The rumour is also that Stags will pay him £5,000 a week, doubling an offer he got from a League Two rival.

Son of former Forest legend Des Walker, the player has struggled to nail a regular place in the Reds’ Championship side and spent the second half of the season out on loan at Bolton Wanderers, where he started just five times.

Derby County’s Mason Bennett is another striker linked with Stags in recent weeks while ex-Stags midfielder Giles Coke, who ended last season at local rivals Chesterfield, is rumoured to be training with Mansfield.
