Nottingham Forest appear to have kicked off their summer transfer dealings by offering out-of-contract Marcus Tudgay a new deal, according to Sky Sports.

Tudgay could leave on a free transfer next month and manager Billy Davies is believed to be keen to keep the striker on a one-year deal.

The player’s agent, Darryl Powell of Paramount Sports Management, told Sky Sports: “Forest have offered Marcus a new one-year deal and he is weighing up all his options.

“Marcus loves it at Forest and playing under Billy Davies even though he would have liked a bit more security with a longer-term contract offer.”

Davies signed the 30-year-old from Sheffield Wednesday on loan in November 2010 and the deal was made permanent in January 2011.

Tudgay joined Barnsley on a two-month loan last season after undergoing a double hernia operation in September. After scoring three goals in nine appearances he returned to Forest after breaking his collarbone.
