Marlon Harewood has reacted on Twitter after Will Swan announced that he’s departed Nottingham Forest.

The striker has joined Mansfield Town on a permanent basis after scoring nine goals during a loan spell last season.

Forest let the 22-year-old make the short move to North Nottinghamshire; ending a long association for Swan at the City Ground.

The talisman has been with the club since he was 14-years-old and he made two first-team appearances.

Swan never got a fair crack of the whip at the City Ground and was only deployed as a substitute twice.

Last season was a really positive one for him, however, and he scored nine goals despite missing two months at the end of the campaign.

Swan is clearly a player who could thrive in the future and he should continue to benefit from regular action at Mansfield.

At 22, he simply needs to play. Nigel Clough had made no secret of his desire to keep hold of Swan for next season.

Now, the Forest legend has got his man and Swan will begin life at One Call Stadium as a permanent player from next season.

The man who had two different spells at Forest knows what it’s like to come through the academy ranks at the City Ground.

Now, he’s responded on Twitter after Swan posted an emotional message thanking the Forest fans for their support during his time at the club.

He responded: “Good luck my bro, go smash it.”

Swan now has a huge opportunity to kick-start his career as a professional footballer.

At 22, he has time on his side and Mansfield are a club that will definitely be vying for promotion during 2023/24.

Swan is already worshipped by Mansfield fans and this looks a great move. From a Forest perspective, it will be interesting to see how he kicks on.
