Nottingham Forest's on-loan striker George Boyd hopes to seal a permanent move to the club from Peterborough United this summer.

The former Stevenage man scored his first goal for Forest in Sunday's 2-2 draw at Scunthorpe - the club's final Championship game of the season.

Forest now tackle Blackpool in the play-off semi-finals and the 24-year-old is keen to impress manager Billy Davies again.

Boyd believes the Midlands outfit are a 'massive club' and hopes they can do a deal with relegated Peterborough this summer which enables him to remain at the City Ground.

Massive club

"I want to get something sorted out to stay here permanently. I love it here. It is a massive club and I would love to stay here permanently," Boyd told the Evening Post.

"It is up to Peterborough I suppose, in terms of anyone matching their valuation of me. But I would still like to come to Forest permanently.

"I want to play football and it was good to get a chance to show what I can do against Scunthorpe. If I can do well in training, hopefully I can play a part in the play-offs. If I can get another goal or two like that in the play-offs it won't do my chances any harm.

"I had a chance to show the manager what I can do. I am sure he has an idea of which players will be involved in the play-offs, but maybe there is still time to change that."
