Deal Close: Nottingham Forest agree to take Premier League midfielder on loan

Nottingham Forest v Brighton & Hove Albion - Sky Bet Football League ChampionshipThe Nottingham Forest fans here in the Transfer Tavern are about to embark on an all-day session at the bar, to celebrate the news that Aston Villa midfielder Gary Gardner is set to re-sign for the Reds on loan.

The central midfielder had a successful spell with the Reds during last season and will now return until the end of the current campaign.

The article reporting the news was found in the Nottingham Post by one of the Tavern’s regular football followers as he was waiting to be served.

During his 18-game spell with the Reds last term, Gardner built up a solid rapport with the club’s supporters and left the club with a heavy heart to return to his parent club, where first-team football has been hard to come by.

His four goals last season left punters in the Tavern amazed, with every goal coming in the form of a long-range thunderbolt.

Forest fans… Do you welcome Gardner back? Villa fans… Should Gardner have been given a chance by your manager, given the club’s current plight?
