Chelsea youngster in line for Nottingham Forest loan move

Nottingham Forest are hoping to sign defender Sam Hutchinson on loan from Chelsea.

The 23-year-old has held talks with Forest boss Sean O’Driscoll, who is keen to take him to the City Ground on a season-long deal.

But he could now be needed as cover at Stamford Bridge given that Branislav Ivanovic may have to serve a suspension after being sent off in the Community Shield match against Manchester City.

Hutchinson retired from the game in 2010 because of a knee injury but made a surprise recovery and returned to Chelsea to sign an 18-month contract in December.
