Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies has said that there is no rush for the club to offer Andy Reid a new contract, Talksport understands.
The midfielder has enjoyed a fine start to the season, with five goals in his ten league games so far helping his side to fourth in the division.
His form has also seen him be recalled to the Republic of Ireland squad for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Germany and Kazakhstan later this month.
His last international appearance came almost six years ago, before he was frozen out following a clash with Giovanni Trapattoni, who resigned last month after the country’s chances of making next summer’s tournament in Brazil all but ended.
The 31 year old began his second spell at the City Ground in June 2011, and his current deal is set to expire at the end of the season.
Forest, who have lost just once in the league so far this season, are currently fourth favourites to secure a return to the top flight, and can be backed at odds of 9/4.
