Darlow impressing scouts

A number of Premier League clubs are understood to be keeping tabs on Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Karl Darlow.

The 23-year-old established himself as number one at the City Ground last season, having come through their academy after being released by Aston Villa as a youngster.

Darlow is now understood to be attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs, who are keeping close checks on his progress.

Darlow, who signed a new contract in August, has not hidden his desire to play in the top-flight and England - but has admitted he could recognise those ambitions at Nottingham Forest.

Amongst the clubs watching him are believed to be Man City, Tottenham, West Ham, West Brom and Liverpool.
