Canadian striker Rob Friend insists that he will not be forced out of Eintracht Frankfurt.

Eintracht Frankfurt striker Rob Friend has insisted that he will not be forced out of the German club after being told that he can leave.

The 31-year-old has a contract with the club until June 2014, but it is understood that he has the chance to leave on a free transfer in January.

"Eintracht should forget about getting rid of me just for the sake of saving money. I have the desire to respect my existing contract. I am already 31 years of age. I could have joined clubs in foreign countries recently," he told Bild.

"But I definitely would have earned less money then, even though I was about to be granted a free transfer. Eintracht manager Armin Veh has told me I am a surplus. This is clearly disappointing."

Friend has been linked with a number of Championship clubs in the past.
