Nottingham Forest have confirmed that David Pleat is to step down from his part-time role as football consultant.

The move is part of a restructuring of backroom resources at the City Ground that has seen Keith Burt promoted from chief scout to director of recruitment and scouting.

Nottingham-born Pleat was part of Forest's much-discussed and much-criticised transfer acquisitions panel after joining the club to help former manager Colin Calderwood in 2006.

"We feel that the structure we have developed with Keith in his full-time role is well placed to take the club forward," chief executive Mark Arthur told Forest`s official website.

"I would like to thank David for the enormous contribution he has made in his consultancy role which has seen the club celebrate promotion and reach the play-offs on three occasions.

"David remains a friend of Nottingham Forest and will always be welcome at the City Ground."
