Reports today are suggesting that Newcastle's Danny Guthrie is in line to for Forest on loan until the end of the season.
23 year old Guthrie is an ex-Liverpool trainee who can operate as a combative centre midfielder or as a right winger. He also played a big part in Newcastle’s promotion winning side last season.
Guthrie’s is a set piece specialist with decent passing and vision – he provided 12 assists for Newcastle last term. The only concern at the moment is his fitness due to him being out with injury early on this season and then dropping out the Magpies team altogether.
I for one would be very pleased if this materialised. The guy knows what it’s like to get promotion from this league and is just the type of player we need to help us prolong that last push. His ability to assist and create chances is just what we need. When we played Milwall on Saturday, we had 71% possession and yet that final ball was letting us down.
We'll keep you posted.
