Nottingham Forest midfielder Chris Cohen has told BBC Nottingham Sport that he will definitely be staying with the club next season.
The 30-year-old midfielder scored Forest’s second goal in a 3-0 final day of the season victory over Ipswich Town at The City Ground.
Cohen’s deflected long range strike helped The Reds secure their Sky Bet Championship safety on a nervous afternoon on the banks of the Trent and after the match the popular player told BBC Nottingham Sport that he has agreed a contract extension with the club.

Cohen is Forest’s longest serving player with the midfielder having signed for the club from Yeovil Town along with former Glovers teammate Arron Davies back in summer 2007 in a reported £1.2 million deal.
The midfielder’s appearance for Forest in their 3-0 victory over The Tractor Boys was Cohen’s 300th for the club while the player has netted 17 goals. Cohen’s recent Forest career has been hit by a number of injury problems but the player will now have a further chance to contribute to the club’s success under new manager Mark Warburton and potentially ambitious new owners next season.
Cohen started his career with West Ham United but the player made just a handful of senior appearances for The Hammers before dropping down to build his career with Yeovil Town.
