Fox finalises Forest move

Basingstoke Gazette: Danny Fox Danny Fox

Danny Fox has sealed a move to Nottingham Forest.

The out of favour Saints left back joins the Championship promotion chasers on loan until the end of the season when the move will become permanent.

The 27-year-old made 43 appearances for Saints in two and a half years after joining from Burnley.

His opportunities have been limited by the emergence of Luke Shaw.

Solid Championship player who found himself out of his depth in the Premier League. He won't be missed, but should still still be thanked for his service. Good luck Mr Fox.

Whilst Fox isn't quite at the standard Saints have now reached, I find that comment a bit harsh! I don't remember people complaining and booing him when he and Rickie got us promoted to the PL, particularly when he put the ball on Lamberts head at Fratton Park.

Fox should be wished all the best with his move. He was a vital part of our recent history and the fact he is no longer good enough shows just how far we have come.

Isn't Dan Harding at Forest? For the second time in his career he'll have Danny Fox come in and usurp his place in the team.

Anyway, Danny was a decent bloke who gave his all and was a much-valued member of the dressing room. Good luck to him.

i like fox, there i said it! he hasnt cut it in the prem but he always put in 100% and i'll never forget how he used to stretch his shirt out when celebrating (usually someone else's goal). especially in front of us, against those smelly folks with the good memories down the road.

all the best fox, once a saint....

some people have absolutely no class do they. cant even thank Danny for all the hard work and effort he put in to help us get back to the prem. he may then not have be a prem quality player but that's not his fault. he is an honest hard working player who we should thank and wish well. if you cant it says so much about your character.
MP thanked danny in his press conference and wished him all the best, the club thanked him and said he is welcome back at any time, dejan wished him well and said he will be missed and luke shaw tweeted,
`gunna miss foxy! a good guy and great player too, he has helped me a lot! wish him all the best in the future!`
shows how much the players thought of danny, and even though he was replaced by luke he was still willing to help him to be a better player, showing what a decent professional he is and all the work he has put in behind the scenes.
if you cant thank a player who`s left us and still feel the need to slate him, then I don't know how you can call yourself a supporter. it also shows a total lack of grace and decency.
