Nottingham Forest striker Nathan Tyson fears he could be leaving the club as he is yet to be offered a new deal.

Tyson, who joined the Reds in a permanent deal from Wycombe in January 2006 after a short loan spell, is out of contract at the end of this season.

But the 28-year-old told BBC Radio Nottingham: "I don't know where my future is going and so I am just playing every game like it's my last.

"I don't know what will happen in the next week or so - or in the summer."

Tyson was a key figure in helping Forest win promotion from League One in 2007-08.

However he has not always been a first choice since Billy Davies took over as manager in January 2009.

And this season,the pacy frontman has only started seven games out of 25 in the Championship.

Tyson said all he can do is try to convince the management he deserves another deal.

"It's quite worrying," Tyson admitted. "But if I just put the performances in, and I know I'm not cheating myself and I know I am working as hard as I can, then someone will notice it at some stage.


"I'm out there to impress who I can. It's more likely that it's not looking like Forest at the moment because I haven't heard anything."

But leaving the City Ground is most definitely not his preferred option.

"Looking back over the last five years it's been fantastic and I just hope it carries on," Tyson continued. "I'll see where I am at the end of January or in the summer.

"I'm really enjoying it, I'm really enjoying my football at the moment. I'm going out there with a smile on my face - working hard and I want to be part of something really good this season.

"If I'm not here to finish it off then it's been fantastic but maybe I am here until the summer - I don't know.

"Hand on heart, I haven't got a clue [what will happen]. I don't know what's going on so I'm taking each game as it comes.

"The future is in the balance so I just need to put the performances in and be as honest as I can be."
