Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Dorus de Vries is in talks over a new contract.

The 34-year-old Dutchman's two-year deal expires in the summer, and although he has only played 13 games since joining in 2013, he has started the last four matches.

De Vries told BBC Radio Nottingham: "The gaffer [Stuart Pearce] said they were going to make an offer this week.

"There is contact between my agent and the club and hopefully there will be an offer soon."

De Vries made just his second appearance of the season in the FA Cup third-round defeat by Rochdale in early January and has retained his place ahead of Karl Darlow.

"It's a great club," added the former Swansea keeper. "There is the sense that, with the history and the supporters, there is a base to achieve good things so I want to be a part of it."
