Nottingham Forest have been a team going through some turmoil in recent weeks. Stuart Pearce has been relieved of his duties and Dougie Freedman has replaced him - despite his recent struggles with Bolton Wanderers.
Amid all the recent woes at the club there has, however, been a positive to come out this week, as the club have confirmed that four of Forest's brightest talents had signed professional deals.
The four players in question are Tyler Walker, Nikolay Todurov, Matty Cash and Freddie Nielsen.
Walker is the son of club legend Des Walker and is a goal-getting striker, much unlike his father who specialised on stopping goals.
Todurov is a bullish striker from Bulgaria who only arrived last summer yet has already earned himself a pro deal with his performances.
Cash is a box-to-box midfield talent who also arrived in 2014 from Bisham Abbey. Another new recruit was Nielsen.
The 17-year-old Dane arrived from home town club Viborg and is a colossus at the back, especially considering his imposing frame.
Forest are still looking toward the future, and with these four now tied down the outlook appears brighter at the City Ground.
