But Coppinger has only started two Forest games this season and there have been no talks about extending the deal when it runs out in the new year.
"I just want to play games and that's in the back of my mind," he said.
"We will re-assess come the end of December, start of January and see where we are at."
Coppinger, whose only previous start came in the

said the formation Sean O'Driscoll's side are using was making it very hard for him to force his way into the team.
"From my perspective, the way that Nottingham Forest have been playing doesn't really suit the way I play," he told BBC Radio Nottingham.
