Ezequiel Schelotto, linked with Nottingham Forest on deadline day, discusses his future

The free agent, who has one cap for the Italian international side, was released by Inter Milan recently.

Reported Nottingham Forest transfer target Ezequiel Schelotto has been talking about his future. The winger has been speaking to Tutto Mercato Web about, suggesting that he is open to many different options, but that any interested parties should get in touch with him directly, rather than through an intermediary:

He said: "With my family I decided to end my contract with Inter... So we decided together with [Inter sporting director Piero] Ausilo and [Director General Marco] Fassone, I did not return in the plans of 'coach and then did not want to be dropped from the team. The resolution gives me a chance to find a team at any time.

"I do not have an attorney, I’m without an agent. Me and my family we are evaluating various offers, many teams have contacted me by people who act as intermediaries.

“I'm moving well, to find the best for my future. I am thinking whether to continue playing in Italy, I have time until December 28.

“Otherwise I will find other things, I was contacted to return to Argentina and I'm thinking. But there is one thing I would like to clarify. Who wants me, then call me. Do not use other people."

FC Inter News reported last week that Nottingham Forest were keen on the player as Inter Milan looked to send him out on loan.

In the end, they did not agree to send him out on loan anywhere and therefore released him on a free transfer, which means he is available should Nottingham Forest remain keen on the player.

Schelotto joined Inter in 2013 after three impressive years at Atalanta. Born in Argentina he has played in Italy since 2008, and in August 2012 he made his international debut for the Azzurri – featuring against England in a friendly.

Now he is available for nothing and seems open to options in the market, with Forest surely a potential destination.

Despite the club’s current transfer embargo, the fact Schelotto is a free agent means the club can bring him in should they wish to do so.
