The £17m Nottingham Forest player is reportedly not ruling out a move away this summer

Nottingham Forest are now all but assured of Premier League football for another campaign, but one player has suggested he may not stay at the club.

The Reds lost 3-2 against Chelsea at the weekend – but Luton and Burnley also lost on Saturday afternoon.

Forest will need a mathematical turnaround of epic proportions to be relegated and plans can be made for next season.

More players are likely to leave the City Ground exit, but now one of the club’s star players has remained coy about his future.

Taiwo Awoniyi makes claims about the future of Nottingham Forest

The striker recently returned to action and made another substitute appearance against Chelsea.

Once again, it has been a difficult season for the Nigerian who has missed a number of games due to injury.

Now, in an interview with Nigerian publication Soccer Net, it seems that he has failed to print his colors at the mast after this season.

He said: “It’s a tough one but I’m still under contract with Nottingham Forest and I’m here.

“So for now I’m a Nottingham Forest player.”

Forest must get help for the injury-prone striker

Forget offloading Awoniyi, the Reds need to get another striker capable of starting matches to share the workload.

Chris Wood has done a great job this year filling in while Awoniyi has been injured, but no younger.

As a result, Forest need to stick with Awoniyi but also sign another striker who can share the scoring responsibility.

The player’s injury problems are a concern, but considering he has scored 17 goals since signing for the club for £17 million.

It is perhaps a little worrying that Awoniyi was not more defiant when quizzed about his future.

However, football can be a fickle industry for players and it now remains to be seen if he has any offers to leave this summer.
