“He came into a situation where they won matches and he was just not stepping into the team. A bit unfortunate, he wanted to be involved and contribute. It was frustrating.
“Right now there are a number of opportunities for Frederick. We are back where we were last Christmas when we were looking for alternatives high and low, in Europe and beyond. It was good because now we can pick up these contacts again. The final decision is probably just a few weeks away.
“Yes, there is interest from the US, I can confirm. We are open to most things at the moment.”
