Nottingham Forest midfielder Guy Moussi has signed a new three-year deal.

The Frenchman, 26, was out of contract at the City Ground but new manager Steve McClaren was eager to tie him down to a new deal.

Moussi told BBC Radio Nottingham: "I had opportunity to go somewhere else, I had some interest [from Premier League clubs] but they wanted me to wait.

"When Steve McClaren signed for Forest I was very pleased. He flew to France to see me and gave good arguments."

Moussi continued: "When I spoke to Steve and he flew to France, that made the difference. Then Forest made a good effort to keep me, so it was good.

"I am very pleased in Nottingham, I love the players, I love the fans, so I have an attachment in Nottingham.

"I am happy to see the faces smiling and I am very happy to be back."

Moussi moved to Forest in July 2008 and has made a total of 79 appearances for the club.
