Nottingham Forest are edging closer to completing the loan signing of James Garner, according to Football Insider.
The Manchester United midfielder had his loan spell at Watford cut short yesterday, and looks set for another loan move away from Old Trafford.
Garner made 12 league starts for Watford and made 23 appearances for the club in total, but regular game time is needed.
Quiz: Did each of these 18 ex-Nottingham Forest players ever score a goal at the City Ground?
Nottingham Forest are now said to be closing in on the loan capture, with Garner set for a medical at the City Ground this morning.
The Reds are looking to add depth to their midfield, with Ryan Yates, Harry Arter and Jack Colback all currently out injured.
They tried to bring in Dan Gosling from AFC Bournemouth this week, but the player rejected a move to Trentside and opted to remain at the Cherries.
Here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions as Garner looks set to jet in for a medical…
Good player with potential, we could build with him! However too many options already!

People will say it’s a bad signing because he couldn’t cut it at Watford but the reality is their expectations are a lot more than ours. I wouldn’t be opposed to it tbh.

Exactly the type of signing we should be adding to this ageing, lethargic squad which is past its prime

Don’t we have any young lads coming through the ranks at Forest. Why do we always have to get loans? Here for 5 mins then gone.

Loan I assume pal? Interesting one, especially with the current injury situation in midfield
