Report: Luke Freeman on his way to Nottingham Forest on season-long loan

Sheffield United midfielder, Luke Freeman, is set to complete a move away from Bramall Lane to sign a season-long loan deal with Nottingham Forest.

The former QPR midfielder has failed to really get going since arriving at United last summer and was one of a number of players a lot of fans picked out as a potential leaver.

And it appears that Freeman is going to get his move, with BBC Radio Nottingham reporting on Twitter that Freeman is set for a medical with the Reds.

The move would be a good one for Forest, who are desperate for midfield reinforcements after missing out on the playoffs under Sabri Lamouchi last season. Freeman is a proven Championship player, having been the standout performer for QPR for a number of seasons.

It is unknown yet whether Freeman’s move will see Matty Cash come the other way. The Blades have been linked with the Forest man for a number of weeks.

It’s just not worked out for Freeman really, through no fault of his own in the main either.

He had a few niggling injuries and then when John Fleck was out for the second time, he was also out and then lost the spot to the impressive Ben Osborn.

Forest is a good club for Freeman to move to. They are progressing nicely under Lamouchi and he’ll probably get the chance to play in his favoured number ten role, too.

With a bit of luck, this also signals an incoming for United. Whether or not that is Matty Cash, though, remains to be seen.
