The 30-year-old feels he had no choice but to quit Bolton as he wants to be playing on a regular basis and he is now considering his options.
"I believe quitting Bolton was the right step to take as I didn't have options to play at Bolton," Shittu told skysports.com.
"I wish the club all the best in the future and now I have to find myself a new club.
"I am now reviewing my options and there are quite a few sides interested in me from Europe and the Middle East.
"Hopefully I can announce where my future lies shortly after I return from international duty."
