Nottingham Forest midfielder Josh Barnes has completed a one month long loan move to National League South side Truro City, with the club confirming the deal on their Twitter page.
The 20-year-old is highly rated for his age group and will now be looking to make an impression on Chris Hughton and his staff as he heads to the South West.
Barnes is yet to have made his senior debut for Forest and will be looking to convince his parent club to hand him a chance at first team level after recently signing a new contract on Trentside.
The youngster did however feature under Hughton during pre-season and has shown early signs that he could well make the step up to the top level when required.
Barnes largely plays on the left of midfield and has been with Forest since he was a child.

The Reds have a great existing relationship with Truro, with Will Swan having also previously spent time out on loan with the non league side.
This is a good move on paper for Barnes as he is joining a club that the Reds know well already, so now is his chance to impress whilst on loan in non league.
He impressed during pre season and will now be more in Hughton’s thoughts than ever, so he has to take his opportunity to show that he should be involved at first team level on a more regular basis moving forwards.
It’ll be interesting to see if he will get his chance after returning from this month away from the City Ground, with the Sky Bet Championship club sure to also have the option to negotiate a longer loan agreement with Truro.
Barnes is a good young player and this temporary move could well be the making of him.
