Nottingham Forest 29-year-old makes honest admission as contract runs out, fans will be hopeful

By Danny Wright

Chris Cohen has admitted that he might be on his way out of Nottingham Forest at the end of the season, when his current contract expires.

The 29-year-old has been a Forest player since July 2007 and wants to sign a new deal at the club to reach his 10th anniversary at the City Ground.

However Cohen has missed a lot of action over recent seasons with recurring knee problems and most recently a groin injury that has seen him out of action since the beginning of November.

The club captain revealed his contract worries after he returned from his latest injury, playing for the Forest Under-23s in a 4-0 victory over Hull on Monday

“I have never really thought about leaving, but at the same time the club have to do what is right for them,” Cohen said to the Nottingham Post.

“I have probably not played enough games over the last few years to be guaranteed a contract.

“I hope they know that, when I am fit and playing, I can do a really good job for the team. I know that I can.

“They have got a decision to make but, as I said, I have loved every minute here and I hope that continues for another couple of years yet.”

The former West Ham academy prospect has made just 12 appearances for Forest this season and is yet to feature since Gary Brazil took charge of the club until the end of the season.
