Nottingham Forest eager to take James Garner on loan again but Erik ten Hag wants starlet in Man Utd pre-season squad

NOTTINGHAM FOREST want to sign Manchester United youngster James Garner for a third time.

The midfielder, 21, has spent the last two seasons on loan at the City ground and impressed in their promotion run.

But Forest will have to wait on a decision from United as Garner could be part of first-team plans at Old Trafford.

The Reds want Garner either on loan or as a full-time buy following their return to the Premier League.

However, Garner will definitely be in Erik ten Hag’s squad when pre-season training and games begin, with the Dutchman likely to judge whether the midfielder can impact his squad.

Forest are still optimistic that they lead the queue for Garner.

Although that will mean waiting for an answer and possibly starting the season without him.

Boss Steve Cooper will need to shelve moves for alternatives until that point but Forest may be willing to take that gamble.

United are keen to strengthen their midfield this summer after the departures of Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic.

The Red Devils have been linked with several stars but are believed to be most keen on Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong who could be available for £65million.
