Speaking to reporters, Lennon said that Forrest remains committed to the club’s cause and he has no plans of parting ways with the team. He added that the 28-year-old would prefer to sign another long-term deal with the club despite having three years remaining on his existing deal, he said:“He wants to extend his contract which is great. Rather than talking about people leaving the club we’ve got one there who wants to stay. So that’s one we’ll look at. I think he’s still got two years left on his deal but we’ve already talked about an extension. Well, me and him have!”
