Argentinian Aldo Duscher has issued Deportivo with an ultimatum over his contract.
Argentinian international Aldo Duscher has issued Deportivo La Coruna with an ultimatum, after a breakdown to his contract talks.
The 27-year-old midfielder has been in negotiations with club president Augusto Cesar Lendoiro for some time, but maintains he is yet to receive a suitable offer for his services.
His contract at the Riazor is set to expire this summer and Duscher has called for confirmation about where his future lies after he was made an extension offer on a lower wage.
"I am waiting for a solution from the club because now is the time to speak to other clubs," Duscher explained.
"We want a clear answer. I will stay at the club or leave it. That is the real solution.
"This is not positive for any player, but I must remain calm in my personal and sporting life."
Coach Joaquin Caparros has openly declared his desire to keep the player, but the situation remains murky.
Portuguese defender Jorge Andrade has meanwhile played his first minutes of football since tearing tendons in his knee towards the end of last season.
The 28-year-old came through 19 minutes of Depor's friendly match in Villalba and now wants to build his strength before making his long-awaited return to duty.
"I need the football. I have not played since March 2006, so it is great to return," Andrade enthused.
"My objective is to recuperate fully and to play more friendlies to increase my playing time little by little.
"Playing in a first team match is still a long way off because I need more practice. I need to build my confidence on the pitch and regain the necessary rhythm.
"I am not on the market. My main aim is to return to help Deportivo."
