Rising star Ollie Burke has penned a new long-term contract with Nottingham Forest.

The highly-rated Melton footballer was rewarded for a terrific breakthrough season at the City Ground with a four-and-a-half-year deal.

The Scotland youth international, who began his footballing career with Mowbray Rangers, has established himself as a regular member of the first-team squad.

Burke has turned in some impressive performances on the wing for Dougie Freedman’s side and has two league goals in 13 appearances this season.

It will be the third contract the 18-year-old academy graduate has been offered in the last 16 months with Forest.

He signed professional forms in October, 2014, and only last August agreed a three-year deal.
