Nottingham Forest loan man ‘refuses to be shot’ over future – contract with parent club in 2022
Talk with Nottinghamshire LiveNottingham Forest lender Luke Freeman remained coy about his future, saying his goal was to stay fit and stay with Chris Hughton.
The 28-year-old playmaker has struggled with injuries at times this season. However, Freeman has made his way into the Nottingham Forest starting 11 in recent weeks.
Those injuries have limited him to 18 appearances this season, scoring one goal in the process. Freeman has been in seven of Forest’s last nine games, playing in the attacking midfield or on the left wing.
Freeman struggled to make an impact with parent club Sheffield United since signing QPR in summer 2019. The former Arsenal youngster has played 16 times for the Blades, getting two assists along the way.
His contract with Bramall Lane is set to expire in the summer of 2022. Now Freeman has opened up about his immediate future.
Talk with Nottinghamshire Live, the Nottingham Forest lender insisted that his main focus was on the business of the City Ground, leaving questions about his future for later. He said:
“I’m not too sure. I’m just happy to get back in shape.
“I want to play as many games as possible by the end of the season, and see where it takes me.”
Freeman will be keen to help Forest in his climb out of the league’s relegation zone. Hughton’s men are currently in 17th place, eight points off the bottom three.
The next stop for the club is Reading, which finds itself in a play-off battle. Veljko Paunovic’s side have found their way back to victory in an impressive fashion, with three straight wins leaving them in 5th place.
