Last summer it was reported that Nottingham Forest had an interest in signing Welsh international defender Tom Lockyer from Bristol Rovers.
The Nottingham Post reported that he was on a shortlist of options at the City Ground to improve the team’s defence.
In the end, the reports came to nothing.
However, news this week will certainly have Nottingham Forest considering rekindling their interest in the player.
Lockyer will be a free agent this summer after failing to agree a new contract in the west country.

The 24-year-old, who has five caps for the Welsh national team, has played over 200 league games for The Gas and can play across the back four.
Comfortable on the ball, he is more than capable of playing in the Championship and that will be the main reason behind his exit from the Memorial Ground.
Nottingham Forest could use such a versatile player across the defensive line and it appears he has been on their shortlist before.
He has just become a lot easier to sign.
