Nottingham Forest have confirmed that midfielder Chris Cohen has penned a one-year extension with the club. His deal with due to expire this summer, but Mark Warburton was keen to retain the services of the 30-year-old, who endured a troublesome campaign last season because of injuries.
From March onwards, Cohen was virtually ever-present as Nottingham Forest went on to secure their status in the Sky Bet Championship. It took them until the final day to do so, where Cohen was among the scorers in a 3-0 home victory over Ipswich Town, which condemned Blackburn Rovers to a place in Sky Bet League One next season.
In total, Cohen appeared 22 times last season, and that strike against Ipswich (highlights at the bottom of this page), proved to be his only goal. That was also his 300th appearance for the two-time European Cup winners after making the move from Yeovil Town back in 2007.
It was late last year during a training session which meant the left-footer suffered his latest injury setback. It ruled him out for over three months, whilst back in September 2014 he would miss out for well over a year after sustaining a knee problem at the time. He’ll now be hopeful his injury problems are behind him, although Warburton may feel as though managing his game-time next season could be the best way to go.
The Forest skipper is certainly a big favourite among the fans, and they’ll be just as delighted as he is to extend his stay at the club for a further season at the very least.
