Nottingham Forest are in talks with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink about the possibility of the Dutchman becoming first-team coach at the Championship club.

The former Leeds and Chelsea striker, 39, who played under Reds boss Steve McClaren at Middlesbrough and was part of the team that reached the UEFA Cup final in 2006, has been attaining his UEFA A Licence and applying for jobs.

Following McClaren's appointment last month, Hasselbaink was invited to join Forest's pre-season training and it seems the former England head coach wants him as his right-hand man.

Forest hope to confirm the appointment within the next 48 hours.
