Ben Brereton sale confuses plenty of Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter

Countless Nottingham Forest fans have taken to Twitter to show their bemusement at the sale of Ben Brereton to Championship rivals Blackburn Rovers.  

The 19-year-old is expected to join the Rovers on loan initially, before a £6m deal in January, and some fans can’t quite believe what has happened.

Despite not featuring so far for Nottingham Forest this season, manager Aitor Karanka has said that the promising teenager is part of his plans . However, this clearly does not seem to be the case.

Brereton (valued at £4.5m on Transfermarkt.co.uk) was a member of the victorious England side that won the European under-19 Championship, top scoring in that tournament. He has received interest from Premier League clubs in the past and has been tipped for great things, which is why fans find it strange that The Reds would opt to sell a player with such a promising future.

Here’s what the fans have to say:
