The 24-year-old midfielder’s future has come under speculation in recent weeks, with Championship rivals Burnley reported to be interested in him.
BBC Radio Nottingham quoted Forest manager Dougie Freedman as saying at the weekend that he has asked Burnley to include one of their players in the deal.
It seems that Lansbury’s future lies away from the City Ground, and former Forest defender Laws believes that the ex-Arsenal midfielder will leave the Reds only due to footballing reasons.

Burnley featured in the Premier League last season, and they will be aiming to gain automatic promotion from the Championship at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
Forest will also be aiming for promotion, but they would most likely have to settle for a place in the top six of the Championship.
The 24-year-old former Arsenal midfielder will certainly have the ambition of playing in the Premier League, and one can understand the temptation to switch to Burnley.
