Fresh from helping Nottingham Forest retain their Premier League status, Willy Boly has signed a contract extension to keep him at the club for the 2024-25 season.

The Ivory Coast international, who was part of the squad that won the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations title on home soil earlier this year, had less than two months remaining on his current deal at the City Ground.

Boly returned from the African showpiece with an injury which sidelined him for seven games, but he started the final four matches of the campaign and played a key role in the Tricky Trees’ successful bid to beat the drop.

The 33-year-old defender provided an assist for Ryan Yates in the 3-1 win over Sheffield United on May 4 and scored his second goal of the season against Chelsea seven days later.

Boly paid tribute to the Reds fans for backing Nuno and his players during a difficult few months and is determined to repay that faith next term.

“I’m very happy to extend my stay at the club and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve next season,” he told the club’s official website.

“The support of the fans has been incredible and I can’t wait to continue playing in front of them.”

Forest Chief Football Officer Ross Wilson added: “Willy has been an important player for our group, on and off the pitch.

“He is a popular figure around the training ground and we are all pleased that his time in Nottingham continues.”
