Nottingham Forest striker Marcus Tudgay joins Barnsley on loan
NOTTINGHAM Forest striker Marcus Tudgay has joined Barnsley on loan.
The hard working front man could complete a permanent move to Oakwell in January.
Tudgay has made only two sub appearances for Forest this season and will relish the opportunity to secure regular first team football.
The 29-year-old is out of contract in the summer and had not yet been offered fresh terms for a new deal at the City Ground.
He joined Forest on loan from Sheffield Wednesday in November 2010, before completing a permanent move in the following January.
And his move to Oakwell may now follow a similar path.
Tudgay was informed by then manager Steve McClaren that he had no future at the club at the start of last season, but ended up playing an important role in Forest's Championship survival after Steve Cotterill had taken over as boss.
