Brighton defender Gaetan Bong is undergoing a medical at Nottingham Forest as he puts the finishing touches to a move, Football Insider can reveal.

The left-back, 31, has been given the green light by the Premier League club to complete what is expected to be a loan deal.

A Forest source has told Football Insider that Bong is finalising the transfer today after they reached an agreement for him to join.

The experienced campaigner has fallen down the pecking order at the Seagulls and is set to leave them after making just four appearances in the Premier League so far this season.

He is likely to have played his last game for Brighton as his contract is due to expire in the summer.

The Cameroon international has played over 300 games in his career, 102 of which have come for the south-coast club.
