Stevenage’s head of recruitment on Forest’s wish list as they look to appoint new director of football

Phil Wallace says Leon Hunter is ‘loving his role’ at Stevenage after confirming that Nottingham Forest are interested in Boro’s head of recruitment.

Reports late last week suggested that Forest wished to make Hunter the club’s director of football and had approached Stevenage.

Speaking today about the Championship club’s interest, Boro chairman Wallace told the Comet: “They are not the first club to show an interest in him and I doubt they’ll be the last since he’s a talented young man with an extensive knowledge of British and overseas players and agents.

“However he’s loving the role at Stevenage and has a high level of autonomy and responsibility, so I don’t think it will be that easy for him to be enticed away.
