Kyle Ebecilio arrived at Nottingham Forest late in the summer 2015 transfer window, hoping to build on a promising reputation.

As a former Arsenal academy starlet he won individual awards at international level before electing to return to Holland.

He had hoped to kick on upon his return to England, but struggled to make any sort of impact in the Championship while at the City Ground.

He made just three starts and two substitute appearances for Forest, quickly falling out of favour under Dougie Freedman.

It was agreed in late January 2016 that Ebecilio's loan would be terminated, and he moved to Dutch side ADO Den Haag for the remainder of the campaign before returning to parent club Twente in the summer.

Yesterday it was confirmed by Dutch outlet AD.nl that Ebecilio has been released by mutual consent.

After beginning the season with an injury, Ebecilio failed to make a single first team appearances for the Eredivisie side this campaign, playing for their second string instead.

He is still just 23-years-old and this gives him a chance to start afresh rather than delaying the inevitable decision until the summer.

Ebecilio is yet to prove Dougie Freedman and Nottingham Forest wrong in giving up on him so quickly.
