By Harvey Byrne

Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury has congratulated Dexter Blackstock on his move to Rotherham.

Blackstock, 30, departed from Forest on September 1 after the club and player mutually agreed to terminate his contract.

Now Lansbury has congratulated his former teammate on his personal Twitter account after it was revealed that Blackstock had signed for Championship rivals Rotherham on a three-year deal.

Lansbury posted a simple “congrats bro” on his social media account as well as a picture of the pair.

The two players had been teammates at the City Ground for four years after Lansbury, 25, joined from north London giants Arsenal in 2012.

Blackstock had failed to make an appearance for the Championship club in the new season after appearing in 32 encounters and scoring four goals in the last campaign.

Lansbury, who has entered the final year of his Nottingham Forest contract, is still considered a key player at the club.

The former England Under-21 international has featured in five of the opening seven matches for Forest this season.

In other Nottingham Forest news, the team could be set for a further £4million windfall from wonderkid Oliver Burke’s move to Red Bull Leipzig.
