Jonathan Greening has issued the following statement to supporters after coming to the end of his Nottingham Forest contract."I would like to thank the supporters for the backing they gave me over the course of three very enjoyable years at The City Ground. I will look back fondly on my time at Forest and I truly hope the club achieves its dream of promotion to the Premier League as soon as possible.
"It is my intention to continue playing for at least another season as I feel fit and capable of making a positive contribution to a team.
"I wish everyone connected with Forest the very best for the future."
Marcus Tudgay and Guy Moussi, whose contracts also expire this summer, have backed Greening’s sentiments.
Tudgay, who endeared himself to the Reds faithful when he scored twice in the memorable 5-2 victory over Derby County at The City Ground, said: “I will take away some very fond memories of my time at Forest. I have been lucky enough to play for clubs with huge fanbases and Forest is no different. I hope the fans achieve the Premier League status they all deserve”.
Midfielder Moussi, who joined the club in 2008, will always cherish the special relationship he enjoyed with supporters.
He said: “I will never forget the fans. They showed me so much support during my time at the club. I will always keep an eye out for Forest’s results and I hope they succeed. I would also like to thank all the staff at the club who helped me settle into life in Nottingham.”
Matt Derbyshire, Simon Gillett, Ishmael Miller and Gonzalo Jara also depart The City Ground with Forest’s best wishes.
