Stuart Pearce reportedly wants Manchester United youngster Nick Powell to join him on loan at Nottingham Forest this season.

Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce is reportedly plotting a loan move for Manchester United starlet Nick Powell.

Powell did not feature under Louis van Gaal in pre-season and is thought to be heading out of Old Trafford on a temporary basis following a loan spell with Wigan Athletic last term.

The 20-year-old is said to be keen on another short-term stint away from the club and, according to The Mirror, Pearce wants him to join his new-look Forest team.

However, it is believed that United would prefer to send him to a fellow Premier League club to accelerate his development.

Powell struck 12 goals for the Latics in all competitions last season - including three in their Europa League campaign.
