Nottingham Forest striker Robert Earnshaw hopes to sign a contract extension at the City Ground having revealed talks have got underway.

The 29-year-old Welsh international, whose current deal expires in the summer, joined Forest from Derby in June 2008 for £2.65m and has a strike rate of almost a goal every other game for Billy Davies' side. Earnshaw says he has loved his time with the Reds and is looking to prolong his stay.

"We have opened talks on the (contract) situation over the last couple of weeks and we will see how that goes," he told the Nottingham Post.

"This place feels good and I want to be here. Ever since I have been here it has been so good. I want to progress personally and I want to see this team pushing to go to the Premier League.

"I have seen this club go from League One and getting promotion to all of a sudden seeing a big change around. We are now one of the top teams in this league and we are looking to take the next step."
