Nottingham Forest are delighted to announce that Tyler Walker has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

The 21-year-old has emerged as an important member of the first-team squad this season, scoring the winning goal in the Carabao Cup tie against Newcastle United as well as a brace in the 4-0 win against QPR.

Academy graduate Walker, who signed for the club as an eight-year-old, is delighted to have committed his future to the club until 2021.

He said: "I am buzzing to sign a new contract. I am just trying to get on with my football but I am glad to secure my future here and I can get on with playing football for the team.

"I am just trying to repay the faith that the manager has shown in me. I want to be playing for Forest, that is my main goal so to be playing at the minute is really good. I just want to prove that the faith the gaffer has shown in me is right and I will do my best.

"It always feels special to pull on the shirt. This is the club that has been in the family, I live in Nottingham and it is always special when you pull on the shirt. You have got to show it to the fans that the trust they put in you to put on the shirt is repaid."
