DAVID PRUTTON has spoken about his decision to leave SMS.
The 25 year old was heavily linked to Championship side Hull City, but a loan move to league one title favourites Nottingham Forest was more appealing for the Saints midfielder.
Speaking to the official site he said: ‘I am sad to be going but it is a good chance for me and it will be nice to play regularly again.
‘Forest are in with a great chance of promotion which was a big factor in my decision. It is a very attractive place to play and I am looking forward to going back there.
‘I will have a look and see what is happening at the end of the season but at this stage I don’t think I am likely to be back at Southampton.
‘I really do hope Saints get promoted. They have a great bunch of lads and good management. It is a great set-up, there are some very good people at the club and they deserve to be in the top flight.
‘I will miss everyone and wish them all well. I had a fantastic time here which saw me cover just about every possible aspect of football. I will take away a lot of good memories.’
