Dawson to Stay
The defender’s contract was due to run out at the end of this month, but with the season suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and expected to be completed in July, it is no surprise Dawson wanted to see out the rest of the season.
Dawson is pleased with the contract renewal a hopes to see out his career at the City Ground.
“Playing next year… I’m here and we’ll see what happens after that.”
There is no doubt the contract renewal will please manager Sabri Lamouchi, as his side resume their Championship Campaign at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
Forest currently sit fifth in the Championship and are hoping to cement their place in the play-offs.
Dawson has missed the second half of the season with injury but the Forest supporters will be hoping he can make an impact for their remaining nine matches.
