Portsmouth boss Steve Cotterill has admitted one-time England striker David Nugent looks likely to leave the South Coast club.
Top scorer Nugent netted his 14th goal of the season as Pompey rounded off their campaign with a 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe.
But afterwards Cotterill seemed almost resigned to losing his leading marksman this summer.
He said: "David is out of contract and I have done everything I can to try and keep him at this club.
"There's nothing more I can tell him that he does not already know.
"It's out of my hands now and I really don't know whether he will still be here next season."
