Billy Sharp: Hoping to help fire Nottingham Forest to promotion

Billy Sharp: Hoping to help fire Nottingham Forest to promotion

After falling out of favour at Southampton, Sharp linked up with Nottingham Forest on a season-long loan last summer.

A proven marksman at Football League level, he has helped to put the Reds in promotion contention.

It has been speculated that Forest will look to bring him on board full-time, regardless of what division they find themselves in next term, but Sharp admits he is keeping his options open.

He told the Nottingham Evening Post: "It would be nice if the club I am contracted to were in the Premier League and the club I have been on loan to were as well.

"That would put me in a strong position at the end of the season. That is why I wanted to sign for the full season. I wanted to be settled. I wanted to help the club achieve something special.

"That has given me a good feeling - and hopefully we can achieve something.

"I have been on loan for the season and I have played under three managers. So there has been a certain amount of uncertainty.

"I have seen the rumours in the media that I am going to sign permanently. I have spoken to the gaffer about one or two things.

"But at the minute, I just want to do my job to the best of my ability to help Forest get in a stronger position and, hopefully, to get promotion."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
