The Reds have had to be patient for the midfielder’s arrival but being at Barcelona for a few more weeks possibly furthered his development and the time to have elapsed indicates they believe he is a player worth waiting for. Indeed, Forest have a flourishing academy currently with a lot of exciting players either a part of the under 23s set-up or have already graduated to the first-team, such as Joe Worrall and Matty Cash.
Having started at Arsenal before moving to Spain the 21-year-old has clearly been highly thought of already in his career and it will be intriguing to see if he has a role to play for Sabri Lamouchi before the season is up.
Alex Mighten played recently which shows the Frenchman is not afraid to trust youth even in this important period in the season, and if McGuane impresses for the under 23s then he may get his chance.
A number of supporters are pleased to see him finally join, and some of their reactions can be found below.
Forest casually signing Barcelona's brightest future talent. Levels.

Hopefully it’s not another Jonny Bostock.

Finally, One for the future then !
Be interesting to see if he could maybe challenge the bench towards the end of the season.

This one is a tasty signing. Still think we may see him on the bench for some main games if he is traing well!
