Armand Traore has given an emphatic and clear response to speculation that he is leaving Nottingham Forest after just a year at the club.

The left-back joined the Reds on a free transfer from QPR in the summer of 2016, signing a three-year contract at the City Ground.

Unfortunately injuries limited Traore to just 13 appearances during his first season with Forest and the Nottingham Post reported that there were rumours linking him with a move to Turkish side Kayserispor.

However, when that was put to the 27-year-old via his Instagram page the defender was quick to quash any stories saying he was leaving.

When asked by own follower 'you leaving', Traore's response was 'hell no mate #youreds', while another said; 'Don't leave armand you reds all day' to which the reply was, 'im [sic] not mate'.

The Senegal international has had a varied career to date, coming through the Arsenal youth system after being signed from Monaco and later playing for the likes of Portsmouth and Juventus.
