Dougie Freedman delivers bad news for Nottingham Forest fans over Michail Antonio

Nottingham Forest winger Michail Antonio's future at the club is in doubt.

Nottingham Forest boss Dougie Freedman has confirmed that Michail Antonio is unsettled at the club.

The star man was surprisingly left out of the club's home draw with Charlton this evening, and Freedman has told BBC Radio Nottingham that Antonio's head has been turned.

The winger was missed, with Forest lacking a spark in the 0-0 draw at the City Ground.

HITC reported earlier this evening that two clubs who have made offers for Antonio are Championship sides Middlesbrough and bitter rivals Derby County.

Antonio was a summer signing from Sheffield Wednesday last season, and his lack of focus is disappointing, considering the way Henri Lansbury has remained part of the side despite rumours concerning his own future.

Forest need to stand firm and tell the Antonio he is not for sale, having invested in him just a year ago, for selling him to fellow East Midlands club Derby would create huge anger towards himself, and the club's management if they sanction such a deal.
