Nottingham Forest fans have taken to Twitter to react joyously after Joe Lolley signed a new long-term contract with the club, as revealed by their official Twitter account.

The 26-year-old has penned a four-and-a-half year deal at the City Ground, tying him down to Forest until 2023.
Lolley has arguably been the club’s best player so far this season, scoring eight goals and recording seven assists despite the disruption of a mid-season managerial change.
Be sure to check out the incredible story of the man who rose from a Tanzanian refugee camp to become one of Australia’s biggest football stars in the video below…
The former Huddersfield man recently made his 50th appearance for the club in the 3-1 win against Wigan, a game in which he found the back of the net.
Impressively, the winger’s form earned him the PFA Player of the Month award for October, and saw him nominated for the same award in November.
Forest need to find some form quickly if they are to get back in contention for a play-off place, but for now, most fans on Twitter seem overjoyed at this welcome news…
Great news #NFFC ?⚪
