Ebou Adams has earned himself a contract extension at Forest Green Rovers after catching the eye this season.

FGR has this morning confirmed that they have triggered an additional one-year option on the contract of the influential midfielder, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2021/22 season.

As one of Rovers’ standout players in his first campaign during the 19/20 season, Adams made 40 appearances, receiving numerous plaudits and man of the match awards along the way.

Ebou will now wear the No.8 shirt.

On extending his contract, Ebou said: “I’m flattered to get the contract extension done so early.

"I just can’t wait to get up and running again soon, and improve on last season.”

Forest Green’s Director of Football, Richard Hughes, was quick to point out why the deal was done, saying: “We knew we wanted to get this contract extension done early - Ebou is a great lad and a popular figure among the playing staff and fans.

"We’re pleased fans get at least two more years of Ebou, and his new shirt number.”
