Nottingham Forest's highly-rated young goalkeeper Karl Darlow is being targeted by Nottingham Forest, according to the Daily Mail.

The 23-year-old gloveman missed just three league games for the Tricky Trees last term, after establishing himself as the club's number one in 2013.

Darlow, who stands 6ft1in tall, started his career at Aston Villa before moving to the City Ground in 2006.

Loan spells with Newport County and Walsall gave Darlow his first taste of professional football, before dislodging Lee Camp as Forest's number one last year.

Spurs keeper Brad Friedel signed a one-year contract extension on Monday but third-choice Heurelho Gomes has been released and Hugo Lloris is being monitored by a number of sides.
