Dexter Blackstock has officially signed a new four-and-a-half year contract with Nottingham Forest after completing a medical at the Club.The Antigua and Barbuda international, whose contract was set to expire in the summer, had been linked with a move away from The City Ground in recent weeks but instead opted to commit his long term future to The Reds.
And the striker told Forest Player of his happiness after completing the formalities.
Blackstock said: “First and foremost it’s good to put to bed any speculation and be able to focus on the future.
“I’ve always liked the Club and I have enjoyed my time here. I wanted to stay – I could have allowed my contract to run down in the hope that I’d find a Premier League club or somewhere offering me more money, but I thought it was better to stay where I am happy.
“The new owners have ambition and there is no way I would have signed if I thought Nottingham Forest was moving in the wrong direction. There is no doubt that this club is going places.
“I think stability is what this club needs now to get everybody working together.”
