The Daily Record reported that the Scotland international is in advanced talks to extend his contract with the club beyond the current deal which takes him up to 2022.

Forrest told the Daily Record that the finalisation of his new contract is “near enough done”, adding: “I would like to get it done soon and just focus on playing”. There were further quotes from the winger shared by @ClydeSSB on Twitter which highlighted his desire to remain at Celtic.

The 28-year-old has been a highly effective presence in Neil Lennon’s line-up this season, scoring one goal and setting up two more in the 4-0 win at Aberdeen on Sunday to take him to nine goals and 11 assists already in 2019/20. [via TransferMarkt]
