Forest swoop to bring in talented Sheff Utd playmaker

Nottingham Forest have signed Luke Freeman on a season-long loan from Sheffield United.

The 28-year-old arrives at the City Ground on an initial loan but Forest do have an option to make the deal permanent.

Freeman can operate in midfield or attack and should prove an astute addition to the Forest side. Since joining the Blades from QPR last July, Freeman struggled to make an impact at Bramall Lane.

In total, he made just three Premier League starts having signed in a then club-record deal.

Freeman came through the Arsenal youth system. He has also played for Stevenage and Bristol City, helping the Robins to promotion.

Freeman will now join up with Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi and his squad. He will spend Saturday meeting his new teammates at their training base at Loughborough University ahead of the new season.
