Emmanuel Frimpong: Free agent

Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is on the lookout for a new club after his agent confirmed he has been released at Russian side Ufa, his agent has told TEAMtalk.

The once-capped Ghana midfielder moved to the Russian Premier League club in September 2014 having joined from Barnsley in September 2014.

But Frimpong failed to settle in Russia and his agent has confirmed the midfielder, who started his career at Arsenal in 2011, has been released from his deal and his client is now open to offers.

Cliff Poku told TEAMtalk: “Emmanuel Frimpong has agreed to mutually terminate his contract with Russian Side Ufa.

“The club and Frimpomg decided it best for him to seek treatment outside Russia for a small injury which has kept him on the bench so far this season.

“Frimpong, who never settled in Russia, is now looking to further his career and still harbours ambitions to play for the Ghanaian national team.”

Still only 24, the player is looking for an immediate route back into the game, having previously enjoyed loan spells with Wolves, Charlton and Fulham, before joining Barnsley.

“Emmanuel would like to extend his sincere gratitude to Ufa and the fans for his time with the club and wish them all the best in the future,” Poku added.
