Garner makes Championship switch

Manchester United youngster James Garner has returned from his loan spell at Watford, to embark on another temporary spell at Nottingham Forest.

The 19-year-old, who has already featured seven times for United’s first-team, makes his second temporary move away from the club.

Garner, who featured in 20 of Watford's 26 Championship games this season, gained valuable first-team experience and helped the Hornets sit in a play-off spot in the table.

With opportunities at a premium since Xisco Munoz took charge at the club, it was agreed that Garner’s spell in Hertfordshire should come to an end and he will now spend the second half of 2020/21 with Forest. 

The England Under-20 international will play under Chris Hughton and could make his debut on Tuesday against Coventry City. 

Everybody at United would like to wish James the best of luck for the remainder of the term as we follow his progress at the City Ground.

A number of loan deals are being completed ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.

Tahith Chong cut short his time with Werder Bremen to join Club Brugge, earlier on Saturday evening, while Jesse Lingard joined West Ham United on Friday night.
