Nottingham Forest midfielder Riccy Scimeca could be set to quit the City Ground after his agent revealed he had begun talks with other clubs.

The former Forest captain has been offered a new deal by boss Paul Hart as his current contract expires on 30 June.

But Scimeca's agent, Jonathan Stanger, revealed that the 27-year old has started negotiations with a host of other clubs.

"Riccy's contract with Forest finishes at the end of the June and we are having talks with other clubs at the moment," Stanger told this website.

"He is on holiday now but he gets back on Monday and then we will have to sit down to think about which way to go forward.

"Forest have offered Riccy another deal as well but he wanted to wait and see whether anything else happened before deciding his future."

Scimeca, who represented England at Under-21 level while at Aston Villa, joined the Reds for 2.5m in July 1999.

He has recently been linked with a move to Premiership new-boys Leicester City and Portsmouth as well as Bolton Wanderers.
