Forest plan bid for Spence amid interest from Tottenham, Arsenal, Brentford

Nottingham Forest plan to bid for Djed Spence to keep him away from the clutches of Tottenham, Arsenal and Brentford.

The right-back has been instrumental in Forest's promotion campaign to the Premier Leagues while on a season-long loan from Middlesbrough.

Bayern Munich have also been among clubs tracking his progress there and Spurs and Brentford are said to have made recent enquiries about him.

But Forest hope they now have a stronger chance of being his next permanent destination after triumphing over Huddersfield in the play-off final on Sunday.

After the game, Spence appeared to make a comment towards former Boro boss Neil Warnock, who was in charge when the 21-year-old was allowed to join Forest last summer, tagging Warnock's new Twitter handle alongside a picture of him celebrating in the changing rooms at Wembley.

Boro have preferred Isaiah Jones, who is more of a wing-back, over Spence this season and are happy with the way Jones fits into current boss Chris Wilder's system - meaning Spence will almost certainly leave the Riverside permanently this summer, with two years left on his contract there
