Werder Bremen star Dominik Schmidt has revealed that he is expected to leave the Bundesliga side in the summer.
Schmidt, who made his first team debut earlier this season, and Bremen have failed to agree on a new contract.
“Contract negotiations have been put on hold. Both parties have been in talks for a while, but we have so far failed to reach an agreement,” the 23-year-old Schmidt was quoted as saying by Kreiszeitung.
“We have exchanged thoughts about what we expect, but an agreement is very far away at the moment. Obviously, financial things are the biggest problem here,” commented Bremen sporting director Klaus Allofs.
