The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

MARK War­bur­ton has put to bed any doubt over the fu­ture of Not­ting­ham For­est de­fender Eric Lichaj, de­scrib­ing the USA star as one of the best play­ers at the club.

The 28-year-old has been heav­ily linked with Cham­pi­onship ri­vals Barns­ley this sum­mer, and while talk has ramped up again in the last week, For­est boss War­bur­ton in­sists Lichaj will be stay­ing.

“I read some sto­ries on the in­ter­net with pure amaze­ment. That is the first I have heard of that one,” he said.

“But he is a tal­ented player, he was player of the year last sea­son and he is a part of our squad.”
