However, the wing-back’s parent club’s manager Chris Wilder spoke this week about recalling him during the January transfer window due to a raft of coronavirus cases at the Riverside Stadium.
However, sources have told SunSport that Nottingham have agreed with Middlesbrough to maintain the talented Londoner until the summer.
Spence had a recall clause in his contract but the owner has basically negotiated a new loan deal until June.
That is a positive development for the Forest faithful as well as the versatile defender who “loves it” at City Ground.
He is also impressed with manager Steve Cooper as well as the owner’s ambitions amid the club’s bid to return to the Premier League for the first time since 1999.
Nottingham are also looking to complete some more signings during the January transfer window.
SunSport understand that Bournemouth ace Steve Cook is close to an agreement and is rated highly due to his Premier League experience and past success in promotion bids.
Nottingham are also making a lot of progress in their bid to land Aston Villa‘s Keinan Davis on loan.
