The striker was due to become a free agent this summer but has opted to extend his stay at the City Ground beyond the three years of his original deal signed in 2009.

Blackstock has become a huge fans favourite since joining Forest from Queens Park Rangers with 36 goals in 120 appearances, battling back from a serious knee injury that sidelined him for more than a year.

Chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi said: "It quickly became apparent to me just how important a player Dexter is to Nottingham Forest after my family completed our purchase of the Club last summer.

"I made it one of my top priorities to persuade him to sign a new extended contract and I'm delighted he has chosen to do so."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
