Nottingham Forest fans react after club agree terms with midfielder

By Matt Farr

Nottingham Forest midfielder Matty Cash has committed his long-term future to the club – and fans on Twitter are delighted.

Cash, 19, made his breakthrough into the first-team setup at the start of the season, and has since become an important player.

His performances have been rewarded with a new long-term contract, a deal that was confirmed by the club on their official Twitter account on Friday night.

The new deal will see Cash tied down at the City Ground until 2021, and Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter were delighted to see him commit his long-term future.

After being named in Gary Brazil’s starting XI to face Brighton in the Championship on Saturday, Cash will be making his 22nd appearance of the season.

He has yet to hit the back of the net for the club this term, but he has contributed three assists; his last coming in the victory over Bristol City on January 21.

The new long-term deal should also see Nottingham Forest fend off interest in his services, after a number of sides were linked with a move form him in January.

German Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig had reportedly made a £6million approach for Cash, but Nottingham Forest were not looking to sell.

Forest’s stance on the player remains unchanged, after convincing the youngster to put pen to paper, deterring any potential summer bids.
