- From the section Football
Gary Gardner tells BBC East Midlands Today he re-joined Nottingham Forest on loan because the club feels like his "second home".
The 23-year-old has moved on a deal from Aston Villa until the end of the season and said the passion and support of Forest's fans played a big part in his decision and made him feel "overwhelmed".
"There were a lot of clubs interested but this is where I wanted to be," said the midfielder.
"I always said I would come here and once I was told I could go out on loan Dougie Freedman [Reds manager] was the first person to know."
