Forest fans react on Twitter to De Vries' contract extension

Nottingham Forest Stands

Nottingham Forest supporters are pleased with the news that Dorus De Vries has signed a new deal at the club.

Nottingham Forest supporters have greeted the news that Dorus De Vries has signed a new contract at the club with positivity.

De Vries penned a two-year extension to his current deal yesterday and Forest fans are pleased that he has committed his future to the club.

The experienced Dutchman's deal was expiring at the end of this season, but they can now start to plan for life with De Vries in goal. 

That is important as Karl Darlow is set to move to Newcastle United in the summer and it means that the side now have cover for the loss of their academy graduate.

Darlow has impressed since breaking through at the City Ground, but De Vries will be hoping that his commitment to the club will see him claim the number one spot. 

The 34-year-old started to get regular game time towards the back end of Stuart Pearce's stewardship, but he was actually dropped to the bench for Dougie Freedman's first game in charge with Darlow recalled to the starting line-up. 

The fact that he has been offered a new deal is an indication that Freedman still rates De Vries highly, though, and the news he has signed a contract extension has gone down well at the City Ground.

Here is the best reaction from Forest supporters on social media site Twitter.
