Of course, that does not mean that Karanka has not walked away from his post, but that seems an unlikely move from the Spaniard.
Forest have been said to be considering Karanka’s future for some time, with the Telegraph initially reporting it back in December.
Karanka has been tasked with guiding Forest to promotion, but at the moment they sit just outside the play offs.
Karanka retains a great deal of support at Forest from the fans, who feel he is guiding them in the right direction.
But Forest’s owners are ambitious and there have been suggestions that they are thinking about making a change to try and strengthen their side’s promotion chances.
