Inverness Caley striker Dennis Wyness has told his agent to find him a new club after Craig Brewster called a halt to contract talks.
Wyness was due to sign a new deal last week but it is understood Brewster was so enraged with his performance in Saturday's defeat to Falkirk that he decided to delay negotiations until the end of the season.
He said: "I was shocked and gutted by what happened this week - and I don't know why it happened.
"I played poorly against Falkirk on Saturday but then so did quite a few of the lads.
"When I spoke to the manager on Monday he told me the deal was off until the summer. It's his decision but it's all very strange and I can't say I'm happy at all."
Brewster confirmed that Wyness - the club's record goalscorer - will have to wait until the end of the season before signing a new deal.
"I just decided to put Dennis' deal on hold until the end of the season," said the gaffer.
"He was disappointed and angry but we'll sit down again at the end of the season and have a chat about the options."
Wyness, 31, however sees his future elsewhere and already believes he has played his last game for the club.
"I have a wife and three kids to consider above all else and I can't wait until the summer given the risk the manager will offer me nothing.
"I've instructed my agent to speak to clubs and there are two SPL sides and one or two others showing interest.
"I'll look to get something sorted out over the next week and the chances of me staying at Inverness are now very slim after all that's happened. It's time to move on."
