His move comes after a falling out with Forest boss Steve Cooper.

The 31-year-old and the manager had a huge bust-up after he was named on the bench for a trip to his former club Liverpool last season.

A furious Shelvey reacted angrily to being left out and was sent home by Cooper.

SunSport revealed at the time that he “threw his toys out of the pram” and confronted the gaffer following a team meeting.

Shelvey only played eight times for Forest and never featured again after the bust-up.

He was left out of the team’s pre-season training camp over the summer and he was not handed a squad number for this season as the club tried to force him out.

The former England international has been capped six times by the Three Lions.

He began his career at Charlton before moving to Liverpool in 2010.


A loan spell at Blackpool followed and Shelvey then moved to Swansea after three years.

He impressed in Wales and earned a move to Newcastle, where he played 202 times.

His new side Caykur Rizespor currently sit 5th in the Turkish Super Lig.

The team based in the north of the country were promoted from the second tier last season.
