Nottingham Forest striker David Johnson has signed a new three-year extension to his contract with the First Division club.

Johnson bagged 29 goals last season as Forest reached the play-offs and has added two more already this term.

And the 27-year-old revealed his delight at committing to his long-term future at the City Ground.

"It's all happened very quickly but once Forest made me the offer I was very pleased to talk to them," said Johnson.

"I am very happy at the club and as a family we are settled in Nottingham so I didn't really want to think about leaving.

"In a couple of years time and if things go well I would hope that I might be sitting down again to discuss another contract.

"As a team I'm sure we can push on from here and the aim is for us obviously to go one better than last year.

"Things have changed considerably in the space of just a couple of weeks. We have signed a couple of quality players and the place is buzzing again," he told the club's official website.
