Nottingham Forest forward Tyler Walker is close to agreeing a loan move to Bolton Wanderers, according to a reliable journalist.
Pete O’Rourke made the claim on his personal Twitter account that a deal for the attacker was nearing and would secure the player’s temporary exit from the City Ground.

Tyler, 21, has so far had temporary spells with Port Vale, Burton Albion and Stevenage to boost his first team experience.
And a move to the Macron Stadium will certainly be considered a step in the right direction for the young forward who has notched up four goals from 16 outings for Forest this season.
Football Insider verdict:
The lightning-quick attacker needs more game time and Wanderers need more firepower so this deal would make sense. Given that the Greater Manchester club have only managed to score 26 goals all season, (the third worse in the Championship), Walker’s arrival would go some of the way to improve that, having proven he can put the goals away in England’s second division. Bolton are just one point above the relegation zone which means the Forest forward has a real test on his hands when he makes the switch to the Macron. It will ultimately give him the experience of what it is like to play in a team scrapping for their league survival.
