The Algerian wants to remain with the club, who he has not played for since March 2014.
He has not played for Forest since March 2014, not featuring in a single game this season.
The 29-year-old Algerian international has spent part of this season on loan in Belgium with Lokeren and is now set for a permanent exit from the City Ground in the summer. The country he is reportedly destined to end up in is one where he has certainly experienced previous success.
Last week it was reported by L'Expressiondz that Abdoun is a target for Greek sides AEK Athens and PAOK Salonika.
Abdoun has previously enjoyed successful stints in Greece with Kavala and Olympiakos, so a return to the country would seemingly be welcomed by the player.
However, he has intimated to the Nottingham Post today that he would like to persevere at Forest and hopefully carve out a place for himself in Dougie Freedman's side.
He has one year left on his current deal and considering Forest don't have many options in terms of signing players, thanks to their transfer embargo, maybe it is wise to give him a go this summer.
But considering it was high wages like his that got Forest in this mess, many others are less sympathetic.
But what did Forest fans think?
Reaction was, as expected, mixed:
Not bothered about Abdoun staying or not. Would prefer him to go just because of his wages. #nffc— Thomas Tutin (@Thomas_NFFC_T) May 28, 2015
@Thomas_NFFC_T he's a disruptive influence on the other players & a money-grabber. Get rid I say— Adam W (@Green_Adz87) May 28, 2015
Am I the only one that would give Abdoun another chance if he proved his worth to DF in training? #NFFC— Daniel Beeston (@NFFC_LowerBC) May 28, 2015
I'm not gonna sit on the fence here, I'm firmly in the 'let abdoun rot' camp #nffc— Psycho Jay (@forest_jay) May 28, 2015
I'd give Abdoun another chance only if he agreed to lower his wage bill that he earns atm #nffc— Michael Cleaver (@xCleaverNFFC) May 28, 2015
It amazes me how any #nffc fan can defend abdoun & think he's worth another shot. He's took the piss out of the club & the fans for 2 years— Ed 034 (@dingdinghopkin) May 28, 2015
I'd love to see Abdoun knuckle down and tear Championship defences apart next season. Can't see it happening, but I'd love it. #NFFC— Roman Filipowicz (@fritzromanov) May 28, 2015
If Abdoun works hard to back in the team and plays well that's to #nffc s benefit. Which is what counts. Got to be pragmatic about things— steve (@trickynffc) May 28, 2015
If We're paying Abdoun and he impresses the manager, he should play. #nffc— Andy Brown (@redbrowny31) May 28, 2015
When we've got an embargo & are trying to adhere to FFP makes no sense to keep a money-grabbing waster like Abdoun who's nowt special #nffc— Adam W (@Green_Adz87) May 28, 2015
