Danny Fox has signed a new one-year deal with Championship side Nottingham Forest, as confirmed by their club website.

The defender’s original contract was yet to expire in the summer and there were questions regarding his future at the City Ground. However, he has done enough this season to earn himself a new contract until June 2019.

Fox, who is 31-years-old, has been at Nottingham Forest since 2014 and has played 99 games for the Reds to date.

He started his career at Everton but never broke into the first-team at Goodison Park. He had loan spells at Gateshead and Stranraer before he left Everton on a permanent basis to sign for Walsall in 2005.

He spent three seasons at Walsall before he was snapped up by Coventry City. He played 63 times for them before he signed for Scottish Premier League giants Celtic. His move to the Hoops was short-lived and he joined Premier League side Burnley for £1.8 million after just six months at Celtic.

Fox spent a year with Burnley and then three years at Southampton before he signed for Forest in 2014, initially on loan. He has been a useful player for the Reds and can be used as either a left-back or a centre-back.
