The defender was handed the role in Forest's friendly 1-0 win over Sporting Lisbon last week.
And after receiving the honour in pre-season, he is keen to extend it into the new campaign.
"It was a nice honour for me to be captain, it is something I would like to think I could do quite well at," he told the Nottingham Evening Post.
"I am not too sure what will happen in the future with it, but I had a chat with the manager after the game and he said he saw me as captain material.
"It would be nice to keep it."
