Pearce pleased to see Lansbury sign new deal

Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce is delighted that Henri Lansbury has signed a new deal with the club, according to Sky Sports.

The 23 year old had two years remaining on his previous deal at the City Ground, and was strongly linked with a move to Premier League newcomers Burnley.

However, Pearce was confident that the former Arsenal youth player and the East Midlands club would come to an agreement, after hearing from the midfielder’s agent that he was happy with the fresh terms.

Lansbury moved to Forest from Arsenal in the summer of 2012, and has gone on to make sixty-two appearances for the club, scoring twelve goals.

Prior to his move to the two-time European Cup winners, he enjoyed loan spells with Scunthorpe United, Watford, Norwich City and West Ham United – helping the latter two secure promotion to the Premier League.

Forest currently sit top of the Championship, and can be backed at 8/1 to win the division outright.
