Official: Nottingham Forest extend Aurier's contract until 2024

Sergi Aurier is still playing for Nottingham Forest this season. As Forest confirmed on Tuesday, the Ivorian's contract will be automatically extended from 2023 to June 2024.

The 30-year-old Aurier is a right back and came from the youth training of Lens, France. His professional career began on December 22, 2009, and has since played for Lens, Toulouse, Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, and Villarreal.

In September 2022, Aurier will go to the Premier League to play for Nottingham Forest. After 9 months, he played a total of 28 times and scored 1 goal, which played a major role in helping the Forest team achieve relegation one round ahead of schedule.

On the day Aurier confirmed his contract extension, Nottingham Forest announced that 6 players would leave the team this summer. They are 33-year-old Ghanaian striker Andre Ayew, 30-year-old Portuguese central midfielder Cafu, 33-year-old England midfielder Jack Colback, 30-year-old England winger Jesse Lingard, 28-year-old England goalkeeper Jordan Smith and 33-year-old England center Lyle Taylor.

At the same time, the 36-year-old Costa Rica goalkeeper Kyle Navas, the 26-year-old England goalkeeper Dean Henderson and the 25-year-old Brazilian left-back Renan Lodi returned to the team due to the expiration of the loan period. However, it is unclear whether Nottingham Forest intends to continue working with them.
