Daniel Opare's agent has hit back in the defender’s row with Augsburg.
The German side announced on their official Instagram page that the Ghana right-back "violated" the club values of team-work and honesty and "repeatedly lied".
Augsburg's sporting director, Stefan Reuter, had also said of the right-back: "Daniel Opare has knowingly lied to us repeatedly, despite being confronted with the truth.
"Furthermore, he has repeatedly gone against the team's code of conduct."
They say he can find a new club — alerting Leicester and Stoke — but his representative insists he has not been sacked.
Chris Nathaniel, of NVA Sports and Entertainment Group, said: "I am shocked by the recent false and malicious statements about my client Daniel Opare.
"Firstly, he is still contracted to FC Augsburg and will be there until the end of the season when his contract ends so the talk of him being sacked are incorrect.
"I received a call from FC Augsburg on Thursday stating unless my client signed the contract they had offered in two days he would not play for the club again.
"Daniel will continue train hard and will be available to help the club if called upon and it is ironic his temperament was never put into question before the contract issue.”
