Robert Tesche admits Nottingham Forest future is in doubt, discusses contract situation

Forest City Ground

Midfielder Robert Tesche is unsure about his Nottingham Forest future.

Robert Tesche has told the Birmingham City official website that he is unsure about his long-term future at Nottingham Forest.

Midfielder Tesche, 27, joined Forest from Hamburg last summer, having seen his contract with the Bundesliga side expire.

With 25 appearances and two goals to his name, Tesche has enjoyed a decent season at the City Ground, but with new manager Dougie Freedman arriving in February, the German was loaned out to Championship rivals Birmingham City.

Tesche has played five games under Gary Rowett, and scored against Rotherham United in a 2-1 win on Friday afternoon, showing Forest what they are missing.

Tesche is making an impression at St. Andrews, but is only on loan until the end of the season before he returns to the City Ground.

With the likes of Henri Lansburg, David Vaughan and Andy Reid also on the books at Forest, Tesche may have a tough time forcing his way back into the reckoning.

Speaking to the Birmingham City official website, Tesche admitted that his future at Forest is unclear, but suggested that he still has one more left on his contract - despite only penning a one-year deal last summer.

"It is a difficult question because my contract is to the end of the season, then one more year at Forest," said Tesche. "It is not easy to answer this question."

"First, I have to go back to Forest. Maybe I get my chance there. If not, we will see what happens. Yes, I have enjoyed it here a lot. Very well. I have played many games, I have helped the team to win. The gaffer talks to me, tells me what he wants to see. It is good for me right now," he added.

The Nottingham Post reported last month that Forest had an option to extend his deal by one more year, and Tesche's comments suggest that has either already happened or could happen in the near future.
