The midfielder began his career at hometown club Reading but saw his development halted by a cruciate knee injury which ruled him out for most of the 2005-06 season.
He joined Forest on loan the following season but made only one appearance, as an 88th minute substitute in a 3-0 League One win over Cheltenham Town.
The 23-year-old, who has played for Scotland at various youth levels, kick-started his career with a loan move to Bournemouth in 2007 before getting a taste for The Championship with Norwich.
He first joined our opponents, Millwall, on loan in 2009 and did enough to secure a permanent move in July 2010. He has been a regular for Kenny Jackett’s side so far this season, scoring twice.
