Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury has confirmed that he is happy with life at The City Ground and hopes to discuss a new deal to extend his stay at the club according to the Nottingham Post.

The 25 year old Forest captain has just twelve months left on his current deal with the Championship club but is ready to open talks regarding a contract extension over the coming weeks.

Lansbury has missed a large chunk of the campaign with a serious ankle injury as Forest have slid down the Championship table but the player has impressed since his return to the side and his good performances are said to have attracted the interest of Burnley, Bristol City and Queens Park Rangers.

The Enfield born midfielder is a former Arsenal academy graduate but Lansbury failed to make the grade at The Emirates Stadium making just eight senior appearances for the club and found himself regularly loaned out to gain first team experience with the player making loan appearances for Scunthorpe United, Watford, Norwich City and West Ham United.

In August 2012, Nottingham Forest sealed the permanent signing of the midfielder on a four year deal for a transfer fee thought to be in excess of £1 million. Lansbury has impressed during his time at the club making 131 appearances and scoring 27 goals.

Lansbury’s confirmed desire to stay at the club along with news that Forest are set to exit a transfer embargo has provided supporters with much needed cheer as the Championship season draws to a close.
