MANCHESTER UNITED have terminated James Garner’s loan at Watford and will reportedly send him to Nottingham Forest until the end of the season.
The Red Devils were said to be unhappy with the game time the 19-year-old was getting at Vicarage Road.
Garner has played just 40 minutes of football since December 19 after Vladimir Ivic was replaced by Xisco Munoz as manager.
And both clubs agreed to terminate the loan early despite a positive start to his time in Hertfordshire under Ivic.
He will now head to fellow Championship side Forest after Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling rejected the chance to join them, according to MEN.
The teenager will complete his medical on Saturday.
And an official announcement is expected in the coming days.
Garner made his United debut as a substitute in a 3-1 Premier League win over Crystal Palace in February 2019.
He has made seven senior appearances for the first-team at Old Trafford since.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Jimmy [Garner] has done really well [at Watford].

“Then there was a change of manager and under the new manager he has had only two games and Jimmy hasn’t really had a look-in.
“The first four or five months were really positive for Jimmy. He’s a boy that we really believe in.
“Of course he needs that game time and exposure and the Championship is a very good level of football.”
