Last season Nottingham Forest drafted in several players under new manager Aitor Karanka in the hope of climbing up the Championship table. One of those players was forward Lee Tomlin. Forest brought him in from promotion-chasing Cardiff City. He had a good time at the City Ground. Tomlin scored four goals and assisted three in 15 games for Nottingham Forest but after heavy investment at the City Ground, it became clear that Forest decided not to bring him in.
Cardiff are now lumbered with the player and Tomlin must be wondering why Forest did not come knocking.
He is still in good form. This week he featured for Cardiff’s under-23s against Leeds United. He scored the opening goal of the game as Leeds went on to win 2-1.
It truly is a waste to have Tomlin playing in the reserves for Cardiff, where he has no chance of playing football before the end of the year.
The 29-year-old still has plenty to offer a Championship team, even if Nottingham Forest decided they no longer wanted him.
Hopefully, Tomlin can find himself a new club in January to progress his career.
