Real quality: Nottingham Forest fans praise academy prospect Johnson

Son of former Nottingham Forest forward David Johnson, Brennan Johnson, has been earning rave reviews from fans of the club after scoring a tremendous hat-trick for the U23s this week.

The 17-year-old has been in terrific form of late and the quality of his goals showed that as two came from outside of the box.

Watching the goals back, a host of supporters were drooling over his display. One fan hinted that it would be good to see him in the senior team before a potential loan move next season. Similarly, another supporter hoped to see him get some minutes from the bench in the remaining matches this term.

Two individuals meanwhile spoke about his father, saying he was banging the ball in like his dad whilst another made reference to a chant that used to be sung back when he was playing for Forest between 2001 and 2006.

Johnson Jnr has previously attracted the interest of Everton. That was back in March 2017 but the Midlands club issued a hands-off warning to the Premier League side.

The young forward has meanwhile been capped at youth level for both England and Wales.

Here’s the best of the reaction from Twitter.
