Nottingham Forest have announced the capture of midfielder Gary Gardner on loan for the remainder of the season from Premier League club Aston Villa, according to Forest’s official site.
Central midfielder Gardner joins from Villa after just recovering from an injury he picked up in a pre-season match, and has yet to feature this season for Aston Villa.
Gary is a familiar face to Forest fans as he had a successful loan spell in the 2014/15 season, making 18 appearances for Nottingham Forest, and becoming a firm favourite at the City Ground, with his brilliant performances.
Manager Dougie Freedman can now utilise the player for the remainder of the season as Forest hope to push on in the Championship.
Nottingham Forest are 14th in the table, ten points behind Ipswich Town and the rest of the play-off pack and will be looking to make more of an impact on the Championship in 2016.
