Aina provided one goal and one assist for Nottingham Forest, with the Nigeria international scoring in a crucial 2-0 win over Aston Villa that helped guide the Trickeyes to safety in the Premier League.

His performances over the course of the campaign resulted in a one-year extension to his current contract which will now expire in 2025.
