Aston Villa fans wish Lewis Grabban luck for his next move

Lewis Grabban has joined Nottingham Forest from Bournemouth, but has sent a message to Aston Villa fans where he spent the second half of last season on loan.

The 30-year-old signed for Bournemouth in 2016 but struggled to cement his place in the first team and has had three loan spells since his move.

His most recent loan was to Villa in February where he made 18 appearances, scoring eight goals and registering one assist.

Nottingham Forest snapped up the attacking midfielder for a fee believed to be around £6million as Karanka looks to rebuild the squad in the hopes of taking them back to the top flight next season.

Grabban became a popular figure at Aston Villa even though he was only there for a short time mostly down to his impressive goal-scoring record.

He posted a tweet after his move to Forest thanking the Villa fans for their appreciation while he was at the club and fans have been reacting to the heartfelt message.
