Arvin Appiah signs new long-term contract with Nottingham Forest

Ghana-born England teenager Arvin Appiah has committed his future to Nottingham Forest by signing a new long-term contract.

The promising Reds winger has put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Championship club, keeping him at the City Ground until 2023.

Appiah made his league debut for Forest when he came off the bench in the 4-2 victory over league leaders Leeds United on New Year’s Day.

Prior to that, he was handed his first senior appearance as a substitute in the Carabao Cup defeat away to Burton Albion back in October – marking it with a goal at the Pirelli Stadium.

A statement by the Reds said: “Nottingham Forest are delighted to announce that Arvin Appiah has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

“The young forward celebrated his 18th birthday recently and has now penned a new four-and-a-half-year deal with the Reds.

“Appiah, who joined the club as a nine-year-old, made a goalscoring debut for the first-team this season, coming off the bench to find the net against Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup before making his Championship bow on New Year’s Day against Leeds United at the City Ground.

“The forward has also represented England at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-18 level, playing his part as England Under-17s reached the semi-final of the European Championship last summer.”
