Nottingham Forest fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the news that Henri Lansbury will not leave the club this summer.
The 24-year-old midfielder’s future had 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 seemed that Lansbury’s future lied away from the City Ground, but Forest chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi's tweet on Wednesday evening suggested that the former Arsenal midfielder will remain at the Championship club (click here to read more).
The Championship club then released a statement on their official website making it abundantly clear that the 24-year-old midfielder will be staying for the foreseeable future.
This follows, according to the report, bids from Championship rivals Derby County and Premier League outfit West Bromwich Albion, both of which were rejected by Forest.
Below are some of the best tweets from Forest fans on Lansbury and Antonio:
I bet Lansbury is well chuffed. Decides to stay and then we sign another midfielder. #nffc— AJ (@ajlee17) August 20, 2015
Henri Lansbury ven if he jumps ship next window or next summer - he has impressed me with his attitude recently - great #NFFC player— Sean Cockayne (@seany2703) August 20, 2015
A midfield pairing of Lansbury/Barton is one that I would pay to watch. Unlikely, but possible. #nffc— Scott Cresswell (@ScottCresswell) August 20, 2015
Personally I'd like Antonio to stay like I did Lansbury. But only if his heart is in it! Which apparently isn't the case?? So buh-bye! #nffc— Mr Forest (@Mister_Forest) August 20, 2015
Funny how lansbury was an inconsistent over rated player yesterday morning. Today he is our version of Messi. #nffc glad he's staying though— james ford (@Jim_ford_nffc) August 20, 2015
Now that Lansbury is staying in not too bothered if Antonio leaves especially if he doesn't want to play for us anymore #NFFC— Cy (@Cy_holmes) August 20, 2015
