Nathan Tyson looks set to leave Nottingham Forest after being disappointed by the manner of the club's contract offer.
The 29-year-old's current deal at the City Ground is set to expire and reports claim the offer of an extension was made via letter rather than face to face.
The forward's father Len, who also acts as Tyson`s adviser, told the Nottingham Evening Post: "Unfortunately, Nathan is leaving Nottingham Forest. He is very upset."
He added: "He is perplexed at the way this has been done because he feels he has given the club loyal service for the past five years. The way this has been done shows a lack of respect.
"The club has not discussed this with him since his last contract was signed. All it needed was a phone call or meeting telling him he was no longer part of their plans and Nathan could have prepared his family for the pending move.
"We have a lot of options now but we have probably narrowed it down to four clubs and will be making a decision soon."
