Aussie youngster MacDonald hopeful after Nottingham Forest trial

Australian teenager Josh MacDonald is waiting on a call from Nottingham Forest regarding his playing future.

The 17-year old spent time with the Championship club in February as well as a short stint with Aston Villa and has his fingers crossed about the possibility of getting a call back to England.

MacDonald, who was training with Sydney FC during the last A-League season, would love to head back to the UK for a chance but says he wouldn't mind playing in his home country to further his develop.

"I was supposed to be (at Nottingham) for a week but when the week ended (they) wanted to keep me on for longer so I decided to stay," he said.

"It was a really good club and I really liked it. Everything went well and I'm just waiting for them to get back to me.

"It's a lot different to here - it's a lot quicker and the weather's a bit challenging but I know that they're keen on me.

"I wouldn't mind playing in Australia for a couple of years but my ultimate goal is to live and play in Europe and obviously represent my country."
