Nottingham Forest star Brice Samba has taken to Twitter to make light of some of the reports suggesting that he’s rejected a contract offer worth double his existing wage.

It was reported by The Sun that Samba had rejected a new deal, with the club willing to pay all of Dean Henderson’s £100,000-a-week wage when he signs for the Reds.

The Daily Mail has backed up the claim this afternoon but Samba’s tweets have implied that some of the media are in the dark.

Forest’s first-choice goalkeeper could leave this summer. It’s been claimed that he might not sign a new deal; with three clubs in France thought to be keen.

BEST Brazilian Premier League XI 21/22

French journalist Santi Aouna took to Twitter earlier today to make some points about Samba’s situation.

He said that when the 28-year-old signed for Forest there was a clause to increase his salary should the club reach the Premier League.

The French football journalist also claimed that Henderson earns three times more than Samba and that no wage increase has been offered to the Congolese stopper.

Following his tweet, Samba retweeted it. He basically claimed that facts were being spoken by Aouna.

Samba takes to Twitter and he’s now risking his Forest legacy

This isn’t a particularly good look from Samba, it has to be said.

Regardless of whether or not the goalkeeper is hurting right now, Forest gave the player a chance to play in the Premier League.

Furthermore, Steve Cooper stood by him following his moment of madness against Stoke earlier in the season.

Samba probably does have a right to feel aggrieved that he’s not been offered fresh terms by Forest.

He was the star of the show during the play-off semi-final second leg against Sheffield United. For that, he does deserves praise.

If he’s aggrieved that Forest want to sign another goalkeeper then there really isn’t a case for him throwing the toys out of the pram.

The Reds are a Premier League club now and naturally, better players will be targetted in every position.

Samba should be determined to prove a point to Cooper that he doesn’t need a new goalkeeper and be ready to fight for his place.

These tweets aren’t a good image for a respected player. Hopefully, an amicable ending can transpire between all parties.
