Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Jason Cummings from Hibernian.
Cummings has signed a three-year deal at the City Ground and becomes Mark Warburton’s first addition of the summer.
Sky Sports News HQ understands the deal is worth in excess of £1m to Hibs.
The 21-year-old scored 23 goals in 39 appearances last season as Hibs secured the Scottish Championship title and a return to the top flight following a three-year absence.
Cummings, capped 11 times by Scotland at U21 level, netted 71 times in 150 appearances after breaking into the Hibs first team in November 2013.
He also scored eight times against Rangers during Warburton’s one-year spell in charge at Ibrox.
Hibs chief executive Leeann Dempster said: “Jason goes with our very best wishes. He made a major contribution to our season in gaining us promotion back to the Premiership.
“At this time last year, Jason had one year left on his contract, and the club had spent significant time trying to secure him on a new deal. This was only achieved after long negotiations with the player and his agent and was helped greatly by Neil [Lennon] joining the club.
“Had we failed to secure that deal, it is likely that Jason’s contract would have run down. That would have meant that had he wanted to, he could have signed a pre-contract with another club in the middle of our push for promotion and then left for nothing this summer.
“For the board, gaining promotion was absolutely the number one priority – hence the reason that a bid from another English club was refused last summer.
“That top objective was achieved and in addition, rather than see a talented player leave for nothing this summer, the club has secured a significant fee.”
“In preparation for the new season we will continue to work to bring our core targets to the club.”Soccer Accumulator Bonus
