Nottingham Forest striker Taiwo Awoniyi has been ruled out for two months with a groin injury as per reports.

The 25-year-old sustained the injury during Forest's 1-0 victory over Southampton in the Premier League on January 4.

The ex-Union Berlin striker scored the only goal of the game but was withdrawn by Forest boss Steve Cooper 20 minutes to the end of proceedings.

According to widespread reports, the Reds are in advance talks with Newcastle United's Chris Wood over a possible move before the end of the transfer window.

The Super Eagles striker has netted 4 Premier League goals in 16 outings since joining Forest in the summer transfer window.
