James Garner, on loan from Manchester United, has broken his silence after being promoted to the Premier League with Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
Garner stole the show at Wembley Stadium as Forest and Huddersfield Town played a wary contest under the arch. The 21-year-old got his hands on the game’s only goal at halftime.
His bubbly cross wreaked havoc among the Yorkshire club’s back line as Levi Colwill headed the ball into his own net to give Steve Cooper’s side what proved to be an unassailable advantage. Forest will join AFC Bournemouth and Fulham in the top flight next season.

Post-match United fans were calling for Garner to be given a first-team chance at Old Trafford under Erik ten Hag. United are in the market for a midfielder this summer following the departure of Nemanja Matic and Reds fans believe Garner could be a ready-made solution.
But for now, Garner’s full attention is on Forest and he took to Instagram to celebrate his loan club’s win. Posing with the playoff trophy and his medal, Garner simply posted, “Premier League babyyyyyyyyyy.”
