Arvin Appiah is delighted to have committed his future to Nottingham Forest and is eager to continue to learn with The Reds.
The forward celebrated his 18th birthday recently and marked the occasion by penning a new long-term deal at The City Ground.
“I am delighted to sign a new contract at this great club,” he said. “I have been here since the age of nine so being around the first-team, training and travelling with them, it is a great opportunity to gain experience so I am delighted.
“I have learned a lot, being around such experienced players as Michael Dawson, Lewis Grabban and Danny Fox. I can ask them questions and they have given me good feedback so it is great being around them.
“I am very grateful to everyone at the club for helping me. From the age of Under 9s to 18s and 23s, they have helped me a lot, strength wise, technique and everything so I am really appreciative of the hard work they have put into me.”
Appiah made his first-team debut this season, coming off the bench in the Carabao Cup against Burton Albion to score and it is a moment that wants to build on as The Reds seek promotion.
He said: “I was nervous at first but we were losing, I had nothing to lose so I just wanted to express myself and show what I could do. Luckily, I went one-on-one with the keeper and it went in so it was a good debut for me.
“Hopefully we can get promoted to the Premier League this season and I can play as many games as I can for this great club and score some goals too.”
