Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter as club finally sign Liam Trotter

The Bolton Wanderers midfielder will spend a month on loan at the City Ground.

It has been a will-he won't-he affair but finally Bolton Wanderers midfielder Liam Trotter has signed for Nottingham Forest on loan - despite Forest boss Dougie Freedman twice insisting that the deal was dead.

After the recent fixture with Burnley, Nottingham Forest boss made it clear the deal was dead - telling BBC Nottingham:

"Nothing's happening it looks like that is dead that deal. A technical issue once again.

"Very similar to Ben Hamer we unfortunately cannot get a deal over the line so it is dead. Not happening."

Despite that the rumours rumbled on. It was believed that Forest had tried to resurrect the deal earlier in the week despite the comments from the Scot .

However, speaking in his official press conference yesterday the Forest boss could not have been clearer - Trotter will not be joining Nottingham Forest on loan any time soon.

As reported by BBC Nottingham the Forest boss said the deal was gone and no resurrection was likely.

Now, seemingly out of the ashes, the deal is done and Trotter will stay at Forest for a month. He is also eligible for Forest's game with Ipswich Town later today.

It is fair to say that the deal has caused mixed feelings among fans.

Here is some of the best reaction from Twitter...
