According to the Telegraph, Ross McCormack is unlikely to feature for Nottingham Forest again this season, having failed to report for training in three weeks.
The 30-year old is absent with personal issues, but has also struggled with injuries since his arrival at the City Ground from Aston Villa in January.
McCormack has made just seven appearances for Forest, scoring one goal, and has not featured under Mark Warburton since March’s draw with Derby County.
The Scottish international has not reported to Forest or parent-club Villa, and his continued absence is a blow for the Reds, who are battling for survival in the Sky Bet Championship this season.
Back-to-back defeats over the Easter period, against Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City, have left Warburton’s side in 21st– just one-point above the relegation zone.
There are just three fixtures of the season remaining, with Forest continuing their run-in against promotion hopefuls Reading on Saturday afternoon.
Following Saturday’s clash, Forest travel to Queens Park Rangers, before welcoming Ipswich Town to the City Ground for the final game of the season.
