No surprise at all

Football League World is today reporting that free agent and former Bolton Wanderers captain Matt Mills is about to put pen to paper on a deal to join Nottingham Forest - managed by Mills' former Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman.

In a move that comes as a surprise to nobody, the sub-standard centre-half is moving back to the Midlands (ish) joining a sub-standard manager who seems inexplicably keen on the hoofmaster general.

The former Leicester City and Reading defender would have to agree to terms within Forest's FFP regulations which  restrict the club to offering a weekly wage capped at £10,00 per week but it seems like a deal has been struck alongside former Derby County man Jamie Ward to become Freedman's first signings since sealing his own hilarious two year deal at the City Ground.

Mills scored six goals in 87 games for Wanderers, but never really gelled with fans, perhaps unsurprising given his somewhat nomadic career which has hinted at a willingness to move on for a good payday. Mills' own rather basic game involved getting the ball and twatting it miles out of play, which has it's place in the Sunday pub leagues, but leaves more sophisticated watchers of the game with their head in their hands as a result of the latest misplaced long ball.

Not even arsed.
