Forrester in talks with Hull

Last updated : 05 September 2008 By Luke Thornhill
Forrester, who Brian Laws brought to Glanford Park from the Cods for £50K in March 1997, one of his first moves as Iron manager, was a fan favourite in North Lincolnshire and was instrumental in the 1999 promotion winning team.

The 28-year-old has agreed personal terms with the struggling 
North Bankers, and if the deal goes through will have played for all three clubs in the Humberside region.

The Tigers have not commented on the speculation, but a Northampton spokesperson said: "It's not quite as clear-cut as reports are making out, but it is correct that Jamie's had talks with them."

His time with Scunthorpe was not always comfortable though, despite his obvious talent on the pitch he found himself embroiled in controversy when he described the town as "a bit of a shed" in Loaded magazine. Comments which he later apologised for.
He left Scunthorpe that summer, joining the Dutch side FC Utrecht on a free transfer. He failed to settle over in Holland though, and wanted to return to Glanford Park although Utrecht priced him out of our range.

He was also linked with a loan move back, but the Iron manager Brian Laws apparently turned down the opportunity.

A loan move to Walsall saw him return to England, and that was followed up by a move to Northampton Town where he formed a formiddable partnership with Marco Gabbiadini.

He has now been told he can leave the Cobblers on a free transfer, and the Hull manager Peter Taylor believes he is the man to solve their latest crisis.
