every game this dude played in last season, he caused havoc for the opposition,
can't wait to see what he can do playing for us.
His old man was a good striker and my opinion he's better than him

Good luck to him. He shouldn't have the pressure of being "Kane's replacement". But that's a fair wedge for someone of his profile.

Is this fella any good?

Im happy to hold my hands up and admit I know very little about him.

Plenty of Forest fans seem devastated to see him leave tonight though which I’m taking as a good sign.

But please ignore my ignorance and just convince me that he is gonna be as good as Bale for us. Or even half as good as Bale would be absolutely fine.

We're all going to find out pretty soon if he is. I'm confident from what I've seen of him, especially so far this season.

Forest head coach Steve Cooper sent Johnson a classy message on his departure.

“Whilst we’re obviously going to miss Brennan and the memories he’s given so many of us when he’s lit up the City Ground on the right wing, we’re extremely proud of him and we’re pleased that he’s got this move as he enters the next stage in his career,” said Cooper.

“Everyone knows how great he is on the pitch, but what many people don’t see is the kind, humble and genuine young man he is off it. He was always learning, always showed great humility and had a superb nature in the way he interacted with his teammates and staff.

“All credit must go to his family especially his mum and dad, Alison and David, who should be so proud of the incredible young man they have raised.

“He will be missed by everyone, but he will always be a Red.”

He also got a nice message from the Forest owner too...

Marinakis lauded the youngster within his open letter to supporters.

“Of course, as new players join our family, others move on,” he wrote on the club’s website. “We wish them success in their future playing careers away from Nottingham, but none more so than Brennan Johnson. Brennan epitomises all that is great about football. A young boy playing for his local team, fulfilling his dreams and growing not just as a footballer, but as a human being.

“He is the ultimate young professional and his contributions to the club he loves have been enormous – helping us achieve promotion back to the Premier League and instrumental in helping us retain that status on the final home game of last season. In moving to Tottenham Hotspur he has also provided his boyhood club with the financial means to reinvest and continue to grow. We thank him for being part of our family and giving so much of himself to us. Go well, Brennan, be strong and healthy and we wish you every success.”
