When Nottingham Forest announced their released and retained list for the 2016-17 season one name who was neither here nor there was Lithuanian midfielder Deimantas Petravicius.

Whilst the likes of Nikolay Todorov, Kelvin Wilson and Robert Tesche were all asked to leave Petravicius was listed as a player in the Nottingham Forest squad whose contract was expiring this summer, but had been offered a new deal – along with Matty Cash and Jordan Smith.

So Forest certainly wanted to keep him.

However, he has moved on.

At least it would appear that way judging by reports from Poland – where he is currently on trial with Zaglebie Lubin.

As reported by e-legnickie.pl he is currently on trial with the Polish club and has played for their reserve team. The report claims that he scored on his debut and that Lubin are looking to sign him up on a permanent deal.

It would therefore appear that Petravicius refused a new contract at Forest to go on the hunt for other opportunities.

The busy winger, who can play right or left, had been at Forest since 2011 but only made his debut for the club with a 12-minute cameo in March against Ipswich Town.

The 20-year-old has six caps for the Lithuania national team.
