Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray is resigned to losing Connor Mahoney and expects the out-of-contract winger to join Nottingham Forest.

The 20-year-old made 18 appearances last season as Rovers were relegated from the Championship.

Mowbray told BBC Radio Lancashire: "Let's hope he plays a lot of football and becomes a star and helps Forest get to the Premier League.

"That's where I hear the rumours might be, but let's wait and see."
