Emmanuel Frimpong has returned from Austria after failing to agree a move with Sturm Graz.

The 22 year-old midfielder has remained a free agent since being released by Barnsley at the end of last season, following their relegation.

The former Gunner was willing to play his football abroad and has spent the last few weeks training with Sturn Graz as discussions over a possible deal continued.

However the player was unable to agree terms with the Austrian side and has returned to England.

Frimpong’s agent, Eddie Duah confirmed: “Unfortunately we were unable to agree terms with Graz.

“Emmanuel was very much up for the deal, but is now eager to secure a move and we are now considering a number of options for him.

“He is fully fit and raring to go, and has been training hard all summer.”
