Earnshaw keen to extend Forest stay

Nottingham Forest striker Robert Earnshaw hopes to sign a contract extension at the City Ground having revealed talks have got underway.

The 29-year-old Welsh international, whose current deal expires in the summer, joined Forest from Derby in June 2008 for £2.65m and has a strike rate of almost a goal every other game for Billy Davies' side. Earnshaw says he has loved his time with the Reds and is looking to prolong his stay.

He told the Nottingham Post: "We have opened talks on the (contract) situation over the last couple of weeks and we will see how that goes. This place feels good and I want to be here. Ever since I have been here it has been so good. I want to progress personally and I want to see this team pushing to go to the Premier League.

"I have seen this club go from League One and getting promotion to all of a sudden seeing a big change around. We are now one of the top teams in this league and we are looking to take the next step."
