Done Deal: Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City involved in loan swap deal



Nottingham Forest have confirmed the loan signing of Lee Tomlin from Cardiff City with Reds winger Jamie Ward going in the opposite direction for the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign.

The Reds broke the news on their official website just after the transfer deadline closed at 11pm this evening.

Tomlin and Ward have been on the fringes during the first half of the season at their respective clubs and the deal looks like a good one for all parties involved, particularly the two players in question who will be expected to gain more frequent first-team football.

Ward has played a peripheral part for Forest this season having only recently returned to full fitness after suffering an injury during pre-season, whilst Tomlin has played just 13 times for the Bluebirds this season.

Tomlin joins Joe Lolley, Ashkan Dejagah and Costel Pantilimon in arriving at the City Ground, whilst Jamie Ward will be looking to provide ample support for Cardiff’s £6 million signing Gary Madine.
