Nottingham Forest one of seven sides chasing League One star this summer

MK Dons attacker Scott Twine has now attracted interest from Premier League clubs and Sky Bet Championship sides after a very impressive campaign in Sky Bet League One.

According to the Swindon Advertiser, West Ham United, Burnley, Championship bound Norwich City and EFL quartet Nottingham Forest, West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Middlesbrough are all interested in the 22-year-old.

All seven clubs are keen on signing the attacker, just 12 months after the 22-year-old signed for Milton Keynes Dons.

Twine joined MK Dons after leaving Swindon Town upon the expiry of his contract, however the League Two side did receive £300,000 once Twine had officially joined Liam Manning’s side.

The tribunal deal also stated that Swindon had a 20% sell on clause, which meant if Twine was sold by MK Dons, the League Two side would receive 20 percent of any fee.

According to reports, it is believed that Manning’s side are looking for a fee between £3m and £5m, which Swindon owner Clem Morfuni will be hoping for a bidding war between these interested clubs.

Twine signed a long-term deal when he arrived at Stadium:MK in 2021 but could already be on the move after the Buckinghamshire outfit failed in their bid to reach the Championship via the play-offs last week.

Despite being labelled as heavy favourites for their two-legged clash with local rivals Wycombe Wanderers, MK lost the away game 2-0 before only winning the home clash 1-0.

While on a personal not, Twine had enjoyed a stunning season after winning the EFL’s League One Player of the Year award courtesy of 20 goals and 13 assists in 49 appearances.

Four of those 20 goals came in one game, as Twine ended the League One season in magnificent form, heling MK Dons to a 5-0 win over Plymouth Argyle, scoring four of those goals himself.

It seems that impressive and consistent form throughout the 2021/22 campaign has now caught the eye of teams higher up. This comes as no surprise as many believe it’s only a matter of time before Twine is playing in the Championship if not the Premier League.

It will now be a question of which club is serious about their interest…
