Nottingham Forest keeper Dimitar Evtimov expresses delight on Twitter at signing new deal

The young Bulgarian has committed his long-term future to the club.

Nottingham Forest yesterday tied down two of their young talents to future deals at the club, with Oliver Burke and Dimitar Evtimov both agreeing to stay at the club for the foreseeable future.

Evtimov’s future is certainly interesting.

The 21-year-old Bulgarian under-21 international is highly rated at the club and has been since his arrival from Chavdar Etropole in 2011.

He has since been out on loan at the likes of Ilkeston Town, Gainsborough Trinity, Nuneaton Town and spent a part of last season on loan at Mansfield Town.

The imposing figure will now be hopeful of continuing his progress and maybe breaking into the first-team in the coming years.

He certainly seemed happy to be signing on at the club this week. He took to Twitter yesterday to share this excited message with his followers after finalising the deal:

Next season Evtimov is unlikely to feature in the Forest first-team. The club have Dorus De Vries and recently signed Ben Hamer on loan from Leicester City to be the club’s number one and two next season.

Evtimov in the meanwhile may decide to play the season in the under-21s or he could head out on loan, with Forest having another newbie in Swedish stopper Tim Erlandsson in line for under-21 football this season.

Whatever the future holds it certainly appears that Forest have faith in their young Bulgarian’s current development.
