Manchester United midfielder James Garner has signed a new contract with the Premier League club and returned to Nottingham Forest on a season-long loan deal.
Garner scored four goals in 20 league appearances for Forest in the 2020-21 campaign following his temporary switch in January.
The 20-year-old returned to Chris Hughton’s side on Sunday after putting pen to paper on a Red Devils deal that will run until June 2024, with the option of a further year on top.
Garner said: “I’m made up, Manchester United has been a massive part of my life for over 10 years now. My ambitions are obviously to become a first-team player here. I know exactly what it takes, I’m ready to go and showcase my ability to everyone and keep on striving for all my goals.
“Signing this new contract shows the faith that the club has in me, it gives me extra motivation and means so much for me and my family.
“I want to be a big player for this club one day, that is my ultimate aim and I’ll be working every day to make that happen.”
Garner joins a Forest team languishing at the bottom of the Championship table without a point from four matches.
