Cummings Adjusting To Forest Life

Cummings Adjusting To Forest Life

New striker Jason Cummings has been speaking about how he's settling into life at Nottingham Forest following his switch from Hibernian.

Having come in for an undisclosed fee earlier this month, the 21 year old has been hard at work in pre season training and it's not about fitness for him, it's about adjusting to his new colleagues and getting to know them.

Speaking to the Official Forest Site Cummings said that everybody had given him a warm welcome and he was starting to feel at home amongst the group.

'I have settled in nicely and the boys have welcomed me with open arms. The city is lovely as well; I have had a bit of time walking around to get my bearings and I feel like I am settling in nicely. The boys have been sound and they`re getting to know me. They seem like a good bunch of lads and I`m looking forward to playing with them.'

Speaking more specifically about pre season training and the programme of work so far, he went on to explain.

'It has been hard work but I have enjoyed it. It has been good so far and I have enjoyed the training drills that the manager has put on. Training has been good and the manager and David have been good with me; I feel like I am going to learn a lot from them over the season and I cannot wait to play under them.'

He was also keenly aware that the Championship is a bit of a step up from what he's been used to so far in his career.

'It is a bit of a step up. It is different to Scotland and obviously the standard of the players is a bit better. It feels like they are a lot bigger and fitter and the way they play is faster and quicker. It takes time to adapt but I feel like I am getting there.'

With our trip to America next week for the pre season training camp, Cummings knows that whilst the workload will be a step up again it's also the perfect chance to really bond with his new colleagues.

'I`ll have to get my sun cream on! I am looking forward to it and it will be hard work, definitely. It will be great for a bit of team bonding and to get know the lads a bit better while we are out there. It is hard when you are the newbie to get to know everyone. There is a lot of players and you have a lot of information to take in. But going to America will be a good time for me to get to know them better.'
