Nottingham Forest striker Marcus Tudgay has joined Championship rivals Barnsley on loan until January 3.The former Derby and Sheffield Wednesday man has been limited to just two appearances for The Reds this season but is likely to have more regular exposure to first team action at Oakwell.
The loan move is with a view to a permanent switch.
Forest manager Sean O’Driscoll said: “Marcus is an excellent professional and great to have around the place.
“But understandably he wants to be playing on a regular basis and that’s something we cannot guarantee him. I’m sure it will be successful.”
