Newcastle, Leeds and Crystal Palace All look set to be beaten in their bid to star Brennan Johnson – with Forest of Nottingham increase their efforts to pin him to a new deal.

The Wales international Johnson’s career is being watched by David Beckham – a former teammate of David, father of the young Forest player, at Manchester United.

Beckham has great interest in the Wales youngster and has sent him several messages of support in Instagram – when he scored his first goal, on loan at Lincoln and after his performances at Forest’s FA Cup win Arsenal.

Speedy 20-year-old Johnson has scored nine goals in 31 games for Forest this season, as Steve Cooper’s side push themselves into the race for promotion tickets.

Forest turned down several bids, the highest of around £18m from Brentford, for their home-grown produce in January, who have also been linked with Everton and Burnley.
