Tyler Walker has signed a new contract with Championship outfit Nottingham Forest.

Nottingham Forest fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the news that Tyler Walker has signed a new contract with the club.

Walker’s original contract was due to run out at the end of this month, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk, but the youngster will remain at the City Ground for the next four years at least.

On Tuesday, Forest announced on their official website that the 18-year-old forward has signed a new four-year deal with the club.

Walker is considered as one of the most promising young strikers in the Championship and broke into the Forest first team in the recently concluded 2014-15 season.

In seven appearances in the league for the Reds, the 18-year-old scored one goal, had a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 60%, and won three headers and two dribbles.

The English youngster impressed in those seven matches, and it makes perfect sense for the club to tie him down to a new deal.

Forest have a transfer embargo hanging over them, which means that manager Dougie Freedman will have to use young players next season.

Following the announcement, Forest fans took to Twitter to have their say.
