Tottenham defender Gunter fancies Forest return

Tottenham defender Chris Gunter won't rule out returning to Nottingham Forest next season.

He said: "I have been told that the manager [Harry Redknapp] does not want to sell me and another loan move would be good for me. If that is what happens it would be fine by me. I have had two managers already at Spurs with different ideas and coaching methods.

"But never in my career have I had a run of 20 or more games on the spin, or even played a 50-game season. So I need to go out on loan to learn my trade, how to play a consistent amount of games. It worked well for me at Nottingham Forest and, if someone said I was going back there for a season, I would be happy with that."

He added: "The set-up was impressive, Forest are a big club with crowds of 26,000 most weeks. The manager there [Billy Davies] was good and I really enjoyed playing there.

"Everyone knows they used to be a big club but I discovered that they still are. In my second away game with them, they took 6,000 fans to Barnsley and that doesn't happen in the Championship. It is all there for them to go as high as they want. And they gave me a good spell to progress from.

"I still have two years left at Spurs, the manager has not said I have a future or not because you have to prove that to him and I intend to do so. But I need to know definitely soon where I will be next season and then concentrate on giving my best to whoever I join and see where we go from there."
