Nottingham Forest supporters have reacted to the news that the club have signed attacking midfielder Keith Asare to the club on his first professional contract.
The club announced the news of the signing on their official Twitter page as well as on their website and were quoted as being “delighted” that the player had put pen to paper.

The 17-year-old attacking midfielder joined the City Ground from Southend United in 2015 as a schoolboy and has since become a regular for the U18s as well as featuring for the U23s.
Only in January, the forward was linked with a move away from the Championship club with Borussia Dortmund and Monaco both reported in The Sun to be keen on the youngster.
It would appear that the rumoured switch has not been forgotten by one supporter who took to Twitter to respond to the club’s announcement by saying, ‘That will be 20 million next time you come sniffing dortmund… cheers.’
Another fan gave the youngster some advice by warning Asare to stay away from social media to avoid the behaviour of the Forest faithful.
With just 35 goals registered all season for Forest, the debut of the 17-year-old could be seen sooner rather than later.
Here is what the supporters have been saying on social media after hearing the news of Asare’s signing:
That will be 20 million next time you come sniffing dortmund.. cheers

Good luck to you Keith. I look forward to seeing your big debut. One word of advice though, avoid a twitter account. Some of our fans can’t behave very well.
