Nottingham Forest are delighted to confirm that defender Joe Worrall has signed a contract extension to keep him at the club until 2020.The 20-year-old centre back has progressed to be a regular member of the first-team squad this season, making his Forest debut against Reading in October, and he has been rewarded with a new deal.
Nottingham-born Worrall has progressed through the club's academy, captaining the Under 18 and Under 23 sides, and he gained his first taste of senior football on loan at Dagenham and Redbridge last season, making 15 appearances and scoring his first goal in a 2-2 draw against Newport County.
Nottingham Forest are also pleased to announce that midfielder Ryan Yates has extended his contract with The Reds until 2019.
The 19-year-old had an impressive spell on loan at National League side Barrow earlier in the season, playing a key role as they reached the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.
Yates has since moved on loan to Sky Bet League One side Shrewsbury where he made his league debut against Peterborough on 14 February.
