After a disappointing loan spell with Sheffield United, Lee Martin tried his luck with Nottingham Forest. His initial one-month loan was extended up until the end of the year. However, Martin will return to Old Trafford after his last game for Forest against Norwich on December 28th.

Amongst the Forest faithful, opinion on our 21-year-old winger was mixed. Whilst hailing his potential, they didn’t see enough of his skill and pace for consistent periods during his four month long loan.

Martin has now spent time at Royal Antwerp, Rangers, Stoke City, Plymouth Argyle, Sheffield United, as well as Forest, with his injuries having an impact on every stint away from the club.

After being named Antwerp’s Fans’ Player of the Season in 2006, Martin has gone from club to club, getting limited game time due to re-occurring injuries.

Better he get out now, rather than wait until he’s 23-years-old like Chris Eagles!
