Sky Bet Championship club Nottingham Forest have this afternoon terminated the contract of long-serving striker Dexter Blackstock, who departs the City Ground after seven years service.
The 30-year-old striker was yet to play for the Reds during the 2016/17 campaign, after picking up a minor injury during pre-season, with the club today announcing on their official website that a mutual agreement has been reached for Blackstock to leave.
The Antigua and Barbuda international initially signed for Forest on loan in 2009 and helped Forest to Championship survival, before penning permanent terms ahead of the 2009/10 season.
In 170 appearances for the Reds, Blackstock netted 45 goals with his most recent coming in a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers towards the end of last season.
The target man will now begin his search for a new club and during his career he has also turned out for Queens Park Rangers, Leeds United, Southampton and Plymouth Argyle.
