Former England and Manchester United striker Andrew Cole has left Nottingham Forest by mutual consent. The 37 year old made 11 appearances for the club, including five starts, but failed to score.

Forest boss Colin Calderwood told the club's official website: "It's a shame things haven't worked out as well as we had both planned when Andrew joined us and we came to the joint conclusion that it was best we went our separate ways.

"All my attention is now focused on preparing the squad for Sunday's game at Derby.

"But I would like to place on record my thanks for the contribution Andrew has made and wish him all the best for the future."
