Nottingham Forest star Orel Mangala has insisted he is happy to remain at the club this summer but isn’t against a move either if it is offered to him.

The midfielder has been speaking to Sud Info regarding his first year in the Premier League with Nottingham Forest and whether that’s changed his plans this summer.

The 25-year-old joined Forest in a €13m deal from VfB Stuttgart last summer and established himself as a key player for Steve Cooper’s side not long after.

He went on to make 32 appearances in all competitions, 27 of which came in the Premier League, playing a key role as Nottingham Forest avoided relegation with a 16th place finish.

His performance did not go unnoticed, and he’s since found himself as a member of Domenico Tedesco’s new look Belgium side as well.

All indications are that he will be a key player for them too, should he continue to impress for Nottingham Forest in the Premier League, where he has also started both of their opening league games this season.

As is the case for club’s at that level, there is a chance bigger sides will come calling if he continues to demonstrate his abilities, but Mangala insists he won’t be pushing for an exit.

“I approach this second season with a lot of desire, because I want to do even better than the previous one,” he said.

“I want to continue to grow as a player and, collectively, try to live a championship with less stress.

“In other words, get hold as quickly as possible. Personally, I have set up a small framework around me.

“So, I don’t necessarily see this new season as one of confirmation, but rather as the possibility of continuing to progress and do great things.

“You know, I’m under contract with Nottingham, I have to respect that. After if things were to happen, it will happen. Personally, it does not concern me because there has been no contact this summer.”
