Karl Darlow: Has Premier League ambition

The 22-year-old has been number one at the City Ground since taking over from Lee Camp midway through last season, and he is now regarded as one of the best young keepers in the country.

Whilst Premier League scouts are said to be keeping tabs on his progress, Darlow insists that he can realise his top-flight dream with Forest.

"I always wanted to play in the Premier League and for England - they were my two main dreams. I will keep working hard and I won't stop until I get there," said Darlow.

"Hopefully I'll go up with Forest this season and that will tick that one off the list.

"The England staff like you to be playing consistently at a high level. So hopefully, if I can stay number one here, they might notice me in the future."

Darlow is convinced that Forest can land promotion under Billy Davies.

"If we can maintain the level of performance we have shown in the first few games then, hopefully, we will be right up there (in the Championship)," he said.

"We have a great squad and should not fear anyone in the division. It is an exciting season for us."

Darlow recently penned a new long-term deal which he was delighted to do.

"It's great that my efforts have been recognised and to put pen to paper at such a big club as this, for the next four years, is a massive deal for me," said the 22-year-old.

"I don't get too carried away because you never know what is around the corner.

"I've never felt any extra pressure since becoming number one and I'll keep working hard to keep the shirt."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
