The youngest member of The 4th Official and an ardent Premier League fan who is basically obsessed with scouting young talents and is consumed by the idea of finding the perfect number 10.

Recent reports from FootballTransfers state that Manchester United midfielder James Garner is likely to be loaned back to Nottingham Forest after their Premier League promotion as Steve Cooper looks set to keep hold of the talented youngster.

‘Manchester United will fend off interest for James Garner as they wish to keep him permanently – but he will be loaned back to Nottingham Forest, FootballTransfers can reveal.’ – The report revealed.

Garner will join Manchester United’s camp once his national duties with England’s U-21 side are over. Erik Ten Hag and his team would make a thorough assessment of the available group of players, and following that, Garner might go on the pre-season tour with Manchester United to Thailand, Australia and Norway. Nonetheless, the 21-year-old would head back to the Midlands on a third successive loan spell before the start of the 2022/23 season.

Fellow Premier League clubs like Everton and Leeds United are keen on securing the youngster’s signature, but his only wish is to return to Forest.

‘For Garner, FootballTransfers understands that he and his family really love the club and have built a great rapport with the supporters there.’

The Red Devils academy graduate played a crucial part in Forest’s promotion winning campaign by putting up consistent performances on the pitch week in and week out – averaging 1.9 tackles, 1.4 interceptions, 0.9 clearances, 1.1 shots, two key passes, 1.6 crosses and 1.5 long balls per ninety minutes in the Championship (calculated across 44 appearances). Furthermore, with an average WhoScored rating of 7.09, Garner established himself as one of the best players on his side the past season.

Win-Win Scenario For All Parties Involved?

Sending the Birkenhead-born midfielder out on a third successive loan spell to The City Ground sounds like the perfect move. The youngster feels at home with Forest, and playing with them next season will add Premier League experience to his CV.

“He has been excellent. Over recent months he has been a high-performing player in the team.”Steve Cooper said in March.

“He has been a constant selection for us. The loan is proving to be a really beneficial one. It is important now that he stays at the same level for the run-in. He needs to get to the end of the season and be able to say that he is a better player than he was before he came here.”

“That is always the objective of a loan. We are very happy with him. We work very hard with him and he works very hard himself.”
