The defensive midfielder became a big hit with Forest fans early in the season before missing five months with an ankle injury, but is back and keen to help in the fight against relegation.
He said: "I have enjoyed it here and I think all the players are now better than when we started the season.
"They have learned about the Championship and I need to be better. I see players looking stronger and better and I feel I still have a big role to play.
"When I was injured, the fans think about me, support me and that is really nice. When I came back in the first reserve game some fans came to watch me, so I am really happy about that, it is very nice.
"I enjoy the support of the fans because in France they are there if you play, but if you're injured they do not think about you. I want to play my part now."
