Nottingham Forest midfielder Jonathan Greening has joined Barnsley on emergency loan until January 2.The experienced former Manchester United, Middlesbrough, West Brom and Fulham man has only made three first team appearances for The Reds this season.
Manager Sean O’Driscoll said: “Jonathan is a great lad, his attitude is excellent, he trains hard and Barnsley are giving him an opportunity to play on a regular basis.
“His opportunities with us have been limited since we signed Adlene Guedioura and Henri Lansbury but every time he has come into the squad he has been first class.
“I could have been selfish and kept hold of him just in case we encounter a problem but it’s important to be fair to people.
“Hopefully he can go out and get some games and that will stand us in good stead if he needs to come back into our team.”
Greening is the second Forest player to join Barnsley on emergency loan in the past week, striker Marcus Tudgay having linked up with the Oakwell outfit.
