Nottingham Forest Triggers One-Year Extension for Ola Aina

May, 21 2024.

Nottingham Forest has exercised its one-year option to extend Ola Aina's contract. The Nigerian full-back, who has been instrumental in the team's successful fight against relegation, will remain at the City Ground for the 2024/25 season.

Aina, 27, joined Forest last summer and quickly established himself as a key player. He made 22 appearances and scored one crucial goal this season, helping the team secure its place in the Premier League. Despite a challenging season, including a four-point deduction in March for breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules, Forest managed to avoid relegation.

Forest's survival was confirmed with a dramatic 2-1 victory over Burnley on the final day of the season. The win left them in 17th place, six points clear of the relegation zone, showcasing the resilience and determination of the squad.

Aina said: “I’ve been really happy with my time spent here at Forest and the fans have been great.

"I’m really looking forward to seeing what the future holds.”

Chief football officer Ross Wilson added “Since Ola joined the club last summer he has impressed all of us with his performances both on the pitch and also with the positive personality that he brings to the group every day. We are delighted that he will move forward with us."

Nottingham Forest fans will undoubtedly be thrilled to see Aina continue his journey with the club as they hope to do even better next season.
