Former MLS and U.S. national team forward Robbie Findley has been loaned to League Two side Gillingham for a month after going unused at Nottingham Forest this season.American forward Robbie Findley will spend the next month with League Two side Gillingham after being sent on loan from League Championship club Nottingham Forest.
Findley, 27, scored six goals in 27 appearances across all competitions for Forest last season, but he had not played a single minute for the club so far this season. He is expected to train with his new team on Friday and go straight into Gillingham's squad ahead of Saturday's match against Port Vale.
Findley, who was a starter for the U.S. men's national team during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, bolted to Nottingham Forest from Real Salt Lake after the 2010 MLS season. He played in a couple of matches in the 2010-11 campaign before suffering an injury that sidelined him, but he came back and earned his place the following season under manager Steve Cotterill.
Nottingham Forest replaced Cotterill with Sean O'Driscoll ahead of this season, and Findley has not benefited from the change, but he will be given the opportunity to earn some playing time in the fourth tier of English soccer to try and prove his worth.
