The Frenchman is hoping to keep the midfielder at the club beyond the summer.
Nottingham Forest fans have been dealt a blow this afternoon, as manager Philippe Montanier confirmed that their star midfielder Henri Lansbury is out of action for several weeks with a hamstring injury.
The central-midfielder has been pivotal to any success that Forest have had this season and his injury is sure to be keenly felt in the Forest first-team.

Montanier told his press conference today the bad news, but insisted fit-again David Vaughan could step in and do a job for the side in the meanwhile:
PM: Henri will be out for a few weeks. It was curious as there was no signs during the week, it only appeared in the warm-up #NFFC— Nottingham Forest FC (@NFFC) December 13, 2016
PM: Vaughan is an option to bring in. After a long injury it is tough to play 90 minutes but he is an option to replace Henri #NFFC— Nottingham Forest FC (@NFFC) December 13, 2016
He also went on to discuss the big talking point regarding Lansbury – his future at the club.
The midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and after his impressive form this season there is little doubt that teams will be interested in bringing him in on a free transfer in the summer.

Montanier revealed that he had been in contact with Lansbury’s agent about extending his deal:
PM: I have been speaking to Henri's agent about his contract and we are hopeful that something can be agreed #NFFC— Nottingham Forest FC (@NFFC) December 13, 2016
Forest fans will be hoping that something can be agreed with their marquee midfielder as his exit would significantly weaken the Forest side. Losing him for absolutely nothing would be rubbing salt in the wounds.
